Replicating Nature

In nature, water circulation is vital for corals, fish, and invertebrates in order to achieve optimal health. Providing the proper water movement is essential for many tank inhabitants who require currents to bring food, oxygen, and remove harmful waste.

Setting multiple powerheads can simulate natural currents while eliminating dead pots in aquariums. Positioning powerheads lower/higher can also allow for more natural wave cycles by producing counter currents. It is important to research what flow rates are required for specific tank mates before replicating its environment.

It is recommended to position powerheads to direct detritus and waste into intake of filters. This small step will ensure a healthy and clean aquarium with no areas with high nutrient accumulation.
Pivoting the directional flow diffuser towards the surface will also reap great benefits by allowing for proper gas exchange between the CO2 gas saturated within the water and the Oxygen above its’ surface. This will help Maintain a proper pH for more stable water parameters.
