that is what i hear a lot, but i cant help but feel my powerhead is restricting my midas from swimming freely, it just feels like too much in one direction

i was about to order this Hydor Koralia Hydor Koralia Circulation and Wave Pump Aquarium Powerheads
supposed to be wider circulation

also, i have a bit of dead spot with just using one. I guess i COULD keep my 750 and get a 425 as well but now im sure that must be too much, maybe a 240..ah...i hate when i have to make decisions like this for my fish without being able to physically see how much flow the other ph's create

I would definitely get more than one. I have three now in my 90 gallon. One points up towards the top from the back to front. One is right under that doing left to right and is on a koralia wave maker. And is on the other side of the tank pointing right to left and slightly up.

ok i bought 2x425 because i hear their flow is weak but good radius
if this seems to not be enough ill use the 750 and 425 instead, and use the spare to make salt water

i have a feeling 425 will be good i will place one on the right pointing up and one on the left pointing diagnally across the middle of the tank

i hear random flow is better than circular, any input on that?

Correct. More erratic and random the flow, the better. Bouncing it off the glass pointing at each other will create such flow.
