Im buying everything I need for the 180 im getting in about a week... I am putting 20 baby 1 inch reds in there to start it off. I've allready bought 3 AC 500 Power filters for the filtration. My question is should I buy two power heads and stick one on each side or are the fish to small at that size to have power heads?? What size should I get also?? I was thinking about doing one of those long bubble wands across the back and when they get bigger get the powerheads... or should I just get both rightaway? Thanks! Jake

I would stick one on each side to keep the water moving. Just my opinion though, what I have in my 20 right now is one powerhead on the left then a tank ornament that gives a lot of air bubbles and a gargoyle that flys with airbubbles on the right side.

AC 901 on one side pointing towards the other end of the tank. Your Ps are still young-uns, and they'll need a dead spot somewhere in the tank to get away from the current when they want to relax. An AC 500 would do the trick also in the other side of the tank where the waterflow from the powerhead eases a bit.
