Is your pH stable? or is it moving around a lot?

You can also point your powerheads at the surface of the water. Increasing air agitation will also increase your pH a bit.

Yup, you really need to get some to create flow in your tank.

Is this a new tank set up? Have you cycled your tank?

As long as it's stable at 8, you should be fine. But yes, a power head will help a lot to keep circulation going in your tank.

In a 110, I'd urge you to think about getting 2 powerhead. One at each end. Since you're going fowlr, you won't need much flow. Just some good circulation.
