55 Gallon Tank Air pump or circulation pump ?

Monio347

I currently have a 55 gallon freshwater aquarium I just set up with 2 bala sharks and a pleco but I’m debating on getting an air pump or a circulation pump, I wanna hear y’all’s opinion on which y’all prefer?

Depends what you want to achieve. A circulation pump is just a powerhead that will help to circulate water around the tank if you need more water movement. This will also assist a bit with oxygenation. An air pump connected to an air stone will provide more oxygenation but less additional circulation.

Btw those fish will require a larger tank as they grow.

Cool thanks, I definitely want more movement in the tank so I’ll probably go with a powerhead & for sure going wayy bigger on the tank size as they grow
