Well, if you are not restricting flow from the pump in some way (ie; excess elbows in the plumbing, ball valve after the pump, etc...) you'll need a more powerful pump.

What pumps do you recommend that are in a decent price range?. We have a 25 gallon tank and the pump we have now turns it about 10 times an hr. Plus, we have a powerhead in it. So, if we get a bigger pump its going to be like a whirpool in there. The U-Tube we have is an inch. Is there any way that a smaller U-Tube will fix the problem? Thanks!!
