Hey guys,
I have a 55 Gallon Aquarium with a Marineland Penguin 350B filter. I have it stocked with:
5 White Skirt Tetra
1 Guppy
4 Platies
2 Female Koi Bettas
5 Ghost Shrimp
1 Paradise Gourami
1 Siamese Algae Eater
2 Golden Apple Snails
I have some plants, both real and fake, some rocks, the decor is tilted so that the shrimp and algae eater have places to hide, and I have another hiding spot decoration.
So I got this tank of of Facebook for $40, along with a heater, two powerheads, a backdrop, and a couple decorations. My only problem is that the right side of the tank, the water surface is a bit stagnant. I'm wondering if I should put the powerhead on the right side of the tank, and let it do it's thing. It is a SunSun JVP-101, 800gph. Would it badly stress my fish out? Or should I go for it?
Thank!

Everyone else would be fine. You can absolutely try the powerhead. Aiming it towards the glass will .mute the flow somewhat too.
