I say first of all we need to stop offering this type of advice to Markosaur, I believe he has heard it enough and we certainly have told him enough.
Second, yes, my experience with pygos is that they do enjoy the current a power head provides and I think you are fine with 2. My question for you is....are you running an under gravel filter or are these free standing power heads. The reason I ask is that if you place the power heads facing the same direction, pointing the length of the tank and around the middle to bottom of the tank, he will be able to enjoy swimming in the current much more and I think he will become more active for you. If it is used for a UGF and they are at the top in the corners than the current probable wont help with his shyness.
