Whether used for filtration, circulation or aeration (or a combination of both, or all three), there's no denying that an efficient powerhead is a necessity for aquariums. A filter, circulator, and aerator will not be able to perform their functions well without the presence of a powerhead to get the water moving. Of course, a powerhead works with a pump, so get a combination that works well together.
If you're on the hunt for a good powerhead-and-pump combo, don't look further than the Taam Rio Plus 50 Powerhead/Pump from Pet Store
