Not to doubt you in any way but is it just me or does anyone else find it real odd that both are rated 200gph and yet there is such a big difference in obvious flow? It seem like the heavier flow has to be pumping more gph

I wonder if this is due to the much wider exit mouth on the ac50.
Either way, in all fairness to the manufacturer, these ac
power filters are only designed to filter and not generate current.
Speaking of which, I just got a crazy idea.
We all know how siphoning works and see the current developed from it without the use electricity. Has anyone tried just using a hose positioned in the upper area, stretched upward and out of the tank, then brought back into the lower mid area of the tank to have a free and constant flow? Maybe not as powerful as an ac
powerhead but enough to encourage schooling perhaps?
