Do I need another powerhead?

I currently am only using 1 rio 600 powerhead in my 26 gal FOWLR for circulation. It says it pumps 200 gal/hr at 0 ft. Should I add another one as I am concerned that I dont have sufficient water movement?

I would use another one for additional flow. 2 of them would be ideal, and would be able to make that 26g x 10 = 260gph.

Adding another powerhead will help you create a bit more of a caotic current and help eliminate dead spots. I would look at adding a Maxi-jet 900.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
