There are a lot of uses a powerhead can do.;) Quite a useful device to me.
1. If you wish to make an improvised sponge filter, get a PVC pipe and drill holes on it. Insert the drilled PVC pipe inside a block of foam.
2. If positioned towards the surface, it can help with surface agitation.
3. It makes currents that most fish require.:)
4. Connect the outlets with hoses and connect the hoses to filter boxes and you can procreate a gutter filter system.:)

more pwer is better than more pumps they do tend to warm the water a little during operation i swapped my 400lt hour for a 1000lt hour and added a small mini filter for movement and surface agitation be aware that some fish dont like turbulent water and take steps to diffuse the flow
