Tank circulation problem

Here is a paint picture of my tank. The tank is 55 gallons. It seems the the right side doesnt have much to any circulation at all. I was thinking of getting another canister filter. I have an eheim 2026. I want something a little cheaper this time. What do you think I should get?

If you have adequate filtration and just need more water flow, consider a small powerhead.

Yes this is a problem with a 4' tank or longer. Most of the time a small power head is needed. I have one coming in for my 55gal few days.

I bought one for $10. No need to buy another canister filter.

Having an extra filter is nice. It gives you more pkumbing options like UV, inline heaters, inline Co2 diffusers, etc. Plus, more filter media.

A 2213 or an Ecco would be cool.

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....
