Reviews Powerheads

In this area we have written some reviews of Fish tank aquarium powerheads. These are generally used for water circulation around a fish tank including surface agitation to ensure there is enough oxygen in the water as well as under currents so that all water is equally filtered. Often powerheads are used in marine fish tanks so that corals receive adequate currents to thrive.

Powerheads are also used to power filters both within the aquarium and in some cases used to pump water from a sump to the tank if you are using this type of filtration.
