Question about a Power Head

I currently have a well stocked 50 gal tank and I was considering adding a maxi - jet 900 powerhead to increase water circulation in my tank. I didn't know if this was common or not with frehwater fish, or this would create any issues I might want to avoid. Thanks!

Current Stock

7 zebra danios
5 gold barbs
5 bosemani rainbows
3 black mollies
1 red tail shark
1 common pleco

What is your filtration method now? If its a canister, you probably have fine circulation already. Besides, most small fish are not going to like a strong current.

I use a Whisper Power Filter 60 on one side and a large pump on the opposite side for aeration/bubbles
