Fish only Tank, Need a powerhead?

I have a 72g All Glass Bow Front aquarium with a Fluval 404 filter. I was wondering if any one thinks I need a powerhead to make more current in the tank, the 404 makes pretty good currrent go around the tank, when i feed them the food never hits bottom really. If you reccomend a powerhead, what size/brand.

If its a fish only tank i dont think you need a ton of flow. Now if you where looking at a reef setup then no way would a canister filter provide anywhere close to a good current.

I like maxijet powerheads.

I'm setting up a 125 FOWLR and I'll just be using a Mag 24 in the sump with plumbing and 1/2" jets in the tank. 2000gph at 4' head and about 8 jets should have the water moving nicely, plus they'll be no junkola (PH's, etc) to look at in the tank..
