Powerhead size?

My tank is a 24x12x14. I was at the store and Seen one for 5-20 gallons or one for 10-30 gallons. Which one should I buy?

How many gallons is your tank and what type of power head were you looking at?

Yeah I was given the tank. He said it was 25 gallon. But i figured it was more like 20.

I just want some that is going to circulate the water good and give it good current. Ill find out for sure the ones at the pet store. It price was 28 for 5-20 or 48 for 10-30. I'm not sure what power they output ill go have a look today
