I don't use them at all. What is your GPH without them?

I was wondering if Ii should run my wave makers/power heads all the time or just during the day.
I have one in my largest tank to keep poop from gathering behind a rock formation where there is little circulation; I run it 24/7. I have not seen the need for any in my other tanks.

Keep in mind and for future readers...if you have 8X to 10X GPH filtration, the filters do all the cleanup for you so there is none for the fishkeeper to do.

I'm running two sponge filters and an aquaclear 70 in my 55gal. My sponge filters are rated for 60 gallons so I don't know if I'm over killing it or not.

What is the total GPH of the three filters? That is different than the tank size in gallons the filter is recommended for.
