As a benefit of using the powerhead, it's definitely much quieter and you can use the outflow to help with the circulation in the tank. I've personally never had a powerhead fail, though I'm sure it happens, but I have had plenty of air pumps die.
Hmmm...intruiging idea! Now I need to look up powerhead options! If you have any specific, modest costing brands, feel free to share.


It's not a mystery...snails are the BEST!
