Thread: Powerhead recommendations?
09-19-2012, 03:33 PM #1
Good morning guys!! I was wondering whether it was better to put 2 wavemakers or powerheads in my tank? Its a 55g. Also, what size? I posted a pic in the gallery. Since my last post, I've added 40lbs of base rock. In 2 months I guess I can replace the HOB filter with a refugium. Thanks for your input!!

I prefer Tunze powerheads. They are a little $$$ but you can get better angles and placement options which is well worth the price in my opinion
As for how much flow and movement, I would recommend as much as your stock will tolerate. The below might be able to help you with that
