I think you could be OK but more would not hurt IMO. Just make sure you have some flow pointed up for some surface aggitation. That would give you some good aeration.

Not bad at all. I agree with Melosu though, more wouldn't hurt. I have 2 powerheads in my 29 gallon as well, but also run a skimmer and HOB refugium.

can you go overboard? the reason i ask is that i have 4 powerheads @ 200gph each, plus my fluval 405 @ 350 gph. i removed the filter media, so it's basically all flow. so thats a grand total of approx. 1150 gph of water movement,without that of the skimmer. is that too much? thanks


p.s. it's a 55gallon tank.

It does sound like alot but if you have them strategically placed then you should be OK. I mean like 1 for surface aggitation and 2 for substrate flow and the others for flow in the middle area. We will see what the others say
