recommended powerhead?
im starting a 55 gallon tank but i need a list of power heads i should use and how many should i use and where should i place them in the tank

I like MaxiJets. Good price, very versital.

The number and flow rate depends on your livestock and setup.

for now all im getting is live sand and a couple of beginner fishes

What are these "beginner fishes?" We need to know the species. Some like a lot of flow, some dont.

Tank size?

+1. They put out different flwo rates at different times, whcih makes it like a wavemaker in a way. In a 55, I would have 2 or 3 #3's.

thinhthan 04-17-2008 07:27 PM

Again, it depends on the details. For a fish only aquarium, you are ok.
