Power head question...

Hi, I have a 15gal tank and am looking for a power head. Found one in the following link. Is this a good one to buy? If not any recommendation? Thanks in advance...

I would avoid those. They tend to eventually stop working. Some people have had luck with them but most have not. For a good powerhead look at the Maxi jets by aqurium systems.

I have the Maxijets in my tank and they have been great. Remember to get one that provides about 10x the flow of the tank size--150 in your case. I have also seen recommendations for two or more vs. a single to help with water movement.

Just my beginner's input.

Good luck,

If you add a PH to your tank please add a guard on the bottom to prevent any injuries.
