That's actually a circulation pump. Power heads are what's in OP's first pic

Ah, well that's confusing for the OP - what you really need is a circulation pump then. (Apologies, I have only ever done saltwater so not familiar with other types of filters/pumps/powerheads!) What kind of filtration so you have on it? Running a sump?

You can call it all the same. My advice was just a tip. I call them all powerheads aswell

They're all called powerheads lol, they're just different styles.

What the OP has will work fine once he disconnects the air inlet.

Which I have taken out the air line thingy and no bubbles and is working just fine it is creating a current and aerating the water which is what I wanted

I believe it was koralia that came up with the wide mouth power head. Before that all power heads where like that one. The one you have shots a stream of water like from a hose. The koralia pushes water more like a window fan, a more gentle wider flow. This makes better for a reef system.
