Power head reccomendations/placement for a 15 gallon aquarium
Hello everyone! I have a question on how to adequately circulate carbon dioxide in my 15 gallon aquarium. I am using pressurized carbon dioxide with an in-line carbon dioxide diffuser on the return Lily pipe. My issue is is that there are two dead spots in the circulation; one in the back left of my tank behind my plants and the other directly underneath my movie pipes. I also noticed that the Lily pipes I get an accumulation of diatoms.
I would like your recommendations on some small powerheads such as the hydor pico, tunze, or sicce syncra nano to bolster the flow and to keep the carbon dioxide adequately circulating in my tank for the plants. I would also like to ask for your recommendation on proper placement of it to ensure that I'm getting the best possible flow.
