Circulation

I have a 55g tank and was wondering if two power circulation heads one at each end would be good? Or would just one be fine?

You have you 2 power heads for a 55g FW tank? What's your stock and what are you trying to accomplish?

Ok. What do you have in your tank? What size tank? What are you trying to accomplish?

I have a power head in my cichlid tank. It's a Koralia 750. I use it to help debris from settling on the sand.

I would use 3 1 on either end one in front one to the rear both blowing in different directions one in the center blowing towards front glass in a upward position
4ft tanks have lots of dead spots and this way everything is covered

3 is a good idea. If your gonna spend the money on the 3 power heads I'd get a MP40. That's just me though.
