0, waste of electric and they look bad. Unless you want to use it to keep the waste circulating to the filters

I agree with the above, that they are not necessary. That being said I keep one in all my tanks. They help keep the water moving waste to the filters. I have one in my 75g. I think around 4 or 500gph.

it really depends on you…some people use it to eliminate dead spots in the tank, to circulate waste into the suction filter, and for gas exchange as well.

I want to get rid of dead spots in the aquarium when it's set up and to circulate waste to the filter intakes

there are so many to choose from Aqueon, Marineland, Hydor koralia, and Jebao….I had a marine land maxi jet 900 in my 75gal and it was pretty good..it's good because you can use it as a wave maker or powerhead

I was going to get a hydor koralia evolution 850 but didn't know if one would suffice

Hydor have not been putting out a great product lately. I suggest reading some reviews before you purchase one. I believe aqueon has been making a decent product. Good luck.

I used to have 2 in every tank. Aqueon 950s. I took them all out. I have probably 18 or so laying around. They worked great. But i change water for fun. So no need for them for me
