I've got a 55 gallon tank, 45 of which is water, a Top Fin 60 Power Filter(hob
) & a Top Fin Powerhead 50. The filter is on the right(backside), the powerhead is on the left(backside).
Is anyone familiar with the Powerhead 50? It is submersible but I don't like doing that. So it is near the surface. It provides a nice current near the top from side to side. I can adjust it to make it bubble, but then the current is significantly reduced. I can also attach a tube that pulls water from the bottom.
I've been reading but I still cannot seem to grasp how oxygen, carbon dioxide, surface agitation and/or bubbles intermingle to make better oxygenated water.
What would be the best way to use this device?
