also, I don't need a powerhead, right? I have a filter that does 80 gallons per hour so i figured that was enough flow

All Advice is welcome!!

You won't need a powerhead for a tank that small. Your filter should be fine.

Well the snail trap is not working. Maybe wrong bait. I did not have cucumber or cabbage at home so I put some banana instead but they all climb to the wall of the tank. Maybe they know it is a trap. Will try one more night and observe. This time with cucumber which is recommended. ~ CHUNTC

yes the filter is fine, this isnt SW reef lol, where a powerhead would be beneficial.

sorry Newman, but my reef tank was overcome by some sort of sickness, and all the corals and anemones died, i still have 3 fish and have kept it that way for a while now, but I am thinking of getting back into it when I finish this tank, I will keep you posted!
