powerhead?
 
Should i be using a powerhead?(its just there to generate current). I have one i just put in my tank with common goldfish and a common plec. I have a ex1200 filter and airwalls. The fish find it really powerful and i think it startles them sometimes when they swim through it. Its 12000L/H in a 75 gallon, not sure if i should leave it in or not?

hi
sorry if i'm missing something here....
is your external filter not creating surface movement ?
why do you need extra ?

it does, of course its got a sprey bar etc but just wanted sum extra current for my growing plec. Wondering if it will harm the goldfish

ohh ok,
umm well as long as it's not making the tank like
a washing machine,then it could be ok.
don't take my word for it,hopefully someone will be
along to join in. :)
