Powerhead Recommendations

    Hey guys,

    So, all 3 of my tanks are heavily planted and have water sprite floating on the top. The issue I'm having mostly with the 20g (and a little with the 10g) is that the water is barely circulating. I'm thinking this is a major attributor the algae issue I'm having in the 20.

    The 29g has 2 bubble stones attached to air pumps to help the circulation, but with the 20g in my room, I'm trying to avoid adding an air pump.

    Any recommendations on a powerhead that would work for the 20 high? It has a AC50 filter and is stocked with tetras, microrasbora, and a GBR.

    The 10g has a betta and 3 ADF, so I'm thinking a powerhead would be infeasible, but any suggestions to help the circulation would be amazing.

    What do you have for filtration? If you don't have any current you must have an undersized filter. Get a bigger one?

    Otherwise, if you're worried about a powerhead eating your fish, then an airstone is really the only option.
