Hello Edison,

It's on the low side I think, I am using an Eheim 2215 for my 100 gallon
tank, and this filters the water twice an hour. 

>2.  What kind of filtering material is best to maintain good clarity, but
>would not compromise the health of the plants and fishes?

I use ceramic pipes at the bottom and above that aquarium filter wool. 
Works well for me !

Best regards,
