I want to replace my air pump in my UGF with a/some power heads, but all I can find are "Aquaone" types and they can't be fitted to a UGF...what brands can be used on UGFs? Or don't they even make such things anymore...

Aquaclear is a popular brand designed for use with UGFs. They are also very affordable.

That's a lot of flow for some species. It really depends on how much flow you have right now and what you have in your tank.

Well the air pump does 510L/h and I also and an internal power filter (It doesn't say how much it does, but its an 'Atman' if that helps).
Right now I have 2 occellaris clownfish, Dusky Wrasse and a few softies. I want to get rid of the wrasse and might get a royal gramma and/or flame angel.
I was thinking that would one would be good also because it has reverse flow...but I wouldn't really use it if I had any coral...but it still could come in handy later.
