New powerhead

So I had a airstone in my 29g for a few months now and I've been doing regular water changes, but I hadn't removed the hood in a few weeks. What do I find on the glass hood? A ton of algea growing from the water bubbling up onto the glass. So I decided maybe I'll try a power head so there's less water jumping out. I go over to PetSmart and see they have a 170gph power head for almost $50. I head over to Walmart and they have the same thing for $20 but a kinda weird brand name. I look under the box and guess what? Walmart's AQUA-Tech products are made by Marineland. I look under the other stuff and it's all Marineland made. Anyway, I'm happy with the new powerhead and I even used it to do a water change. I bought a new 40g garbage can with wheels to make it all easier too. lol
