Help! Powerhead positioning!


Hey everyone, so today my two new powerheads came in the mail. 2 Shkerry Aqua 1300gph powerheads.

However, I cannot seem to even place a single one without my tank going to shambles.

I have a 550gph Koralia already placed on the left side of my tank across the tank. It's a standard 55 gallon tank.

I moved one powerhead all over the place and my Xenias just can't take 1800gph of flow I guess. But I'm not giving up. Where should I place it where they won't be stuck in the current and my sand wont fly up everywhere? Thanks!

Try putting the powerhead about mid way between the tank and blowing up? I currently have one only and I might be getting one soon.

Good luck and keep us posted.
