Surface agitation?

My 29g only has 1 power head a 550gph and its pointed over the rocks aimed at the glass. But, I also have a aquaclear50 and a CPR bak-pak Skimmer. Is that enough "surface agitation" or is that even considered surface agitation?

Cool thanks for your input, yeah the Skimmer does help a lot. I also plan on buying another power head, either the same size or bigger and pointing it more toward the surface. Probably more leaning more toward a larger GPH like a 750 or higher, what do you think?
