Nop, just have the sponges I posted earlier and a little bitty air pump on them, that's it, works great
You do NOT need to apologize for questions - That's what we're all here for
Planted tanks do not require a power head nor air stone or any hardcore surface movement. Either case it'll drive out the CO2, so that's not helpful. On top there's several fish that are naturally used to calm or even still standing waters so a strong current in the tank is not desirable for them neither.
To put it simple: Keep it low tech & easy in a planted tank
The other draw back IMO with powerheads, they produce a current (even when aimed under water surface) that make your plant swirl back & forth and that can hinder a proper plant growth.
Really: Planted tanks are easier to maintain and set up then non planted. Yes there's a lot of info out there and it may make it seem 'complicated' when its really not. The clear cut advantage of planted tanks is the plans act like a bio filter if you will and absorb waste in the tank to some extent and help you with the maintenance in that way. No plants in the tank, no little helpers
All you need: Sponge filter or small internal filter, fine gravel a light over the tank most home stores label as 'daylight' and add plants & water (and then of cause fish). Do weekly water exchanges and dep on your source water may be needing to add liquid fertilizers, that's it
