Went to buy a powerhead for my 20 gallon high, and the guy said those were only good if attached to under-gravel filters. I was just wondering if this were true, or if I could still get one without an undergreavel filter. I want it for the sole purpose of crateing a water current. Thanks

I third the motion.

Under gravel filters (UFG) can be used with a powerhead, but will cause some problems in the long run. (you will get alot of argumetns/different opinions about this topic). You can just use a powerhead to have oxygen in the tank, water surface disruption and as a water filter.

Plus trust me when I say, "the best advice you can get is @ PFury". PFury has all the beginners, enthusiests, hardcore hobbyists, fish distributors, and even Frank the scientist. Put that against your LFS employee!!

I got the "Quick Filter" attachment for my 402. I like it a lot. It doesn't suck up feeders or plant leaves. It adds a little more filteration to my tank. The only downside is that it is quite long. But I'd rather have a long canister sticking off of my powerhead than dead feeders stuck in it making the water cloudy.
