Placement of the powerhead should not be near the top of the tank
Actually, a PH near the top or aimed at the surface is beneficial. It will create surface turbulence and facilitate gas exchange. It will break up and surface DOC 's and help to blow out excess CO2 that can drive the pH down. Just look for PH 's that hang over the top of the tank.
