There was another thread that just went over this, but I can't remember where it is. I personally leave mine on all day, they don't seem to mind. But how everyone takes care of thier Ps is unique. Some people swear that one way is the best way, but others may have tried that same thing and came up with dead piranha. I say try it out all day but if your Ps act overly aggressive or something else undesirable then try shutting it off. Or if it's too noisy shut it off.

I always leave them on. And i have added filters on them an is working great for that. And if you don't use a air pump you might want to leave on.

I have to save electricity, plus my RBs can care less with or without them. But I know at time they should require waterflow so I have my powerhead on a timer with my lights. Off in the morning and afternoon.. on in the evenings and night.

Yep I asked the same thing a couple of days ago. I'm trying to leave the powerhead on with my lights. So far it has worked and even when it's not on my Ps are more active.
