Hello, I have a 75 gallon African tank with a 404 Fluval, lots of rock, with gravel. I was wanting some tips on better water movement. Should I get a power head and if so what brand, size and location in the tank? I have the output and intake hoses from my Fluval at oposite ends. :dance: Thanks to everyone who has helped me with my hobby.

i would add a power filter that moves a lot of water instead...like an aquaclear 500.

That would be a good idea. It doesn't cost much more than a power head, it moves a ton of water, and it adds filtration as well.

The only problem I have is there is almost zero room in the back of my tank for a hang on filter. I had to go with a canister because of the space limits.
