marineland powerhead

Ok I was told I needed to get a second power head for my 36 gallon setup and gave it the opposite direction.

I found a marineland maxi jet pro
3 in 1 pump

Wick one should I get. I'm assuming I need to set it up as a circulation pump
The 400 model says 110gph as a, power head and 500 gph as a circulation pump

The 600 says 160gph ph and 750 gph circulation.

Or should I go larger. I currently have a hydor just don't know the size the tag is peeled off

I have two of the 600 on my 65gal. They work well. However if I had to choose again I'd stay away from suction cup power heads. Tired of having to press on the suction cups all the time. I'd get something with a magnet. The two in one feature is nice though.

Well then you'll most likely have the maxi running in circulation mode so consider the higher gph rating on the pumps when u decide. For your size tank I would stay below the maxi jet 600.
