Question Small power head for a 20-long?

Hi all,

Anyone have experience with a Koralia 240 Nano Pump on a 20-L planted tank? Too strong? Just right? I'm looking at ways to bring more circulation to the end of my tank opposite from where the filter sits.

Yep. A tank with lots of plants, including stem plants still putting down roots.

It should be fine, I have one in a 30l which is perfect, a 40b which could use a little more. Position will be the trick.

Where would you suggest? The idea is to get more flow on one side, particularly at the rear.
