You don't need a powerhead, but I use them and like them. In one tank I use it to move poo off the surface of the sand and into the filter's intake.

On my planted tank I use one to disturb the surface of the water.

I use the ones from walmart, they are only like 21.00 and I have had mine for 7 months and they are going strong.

I run two of them with 6" sponge filters at their base. I put them in the back corners and point them towards the front middle of the tank. You can hide them fairly well with plants or rocks.
