An aquaintance saw my tank and wants to install powerheads in his UGF. He has an air-driven UGF now. My tank was relatively new (and there wasn't much crud under the plates) when I put the powerheadds in mine, so I thought I put his questions to you:

First, did your fish freak when you suddenly added current to a tank that didn't have it before?

Second, is he going to have to tear up the current plates and clean it out before he adds the heads?

He's got a big tank, around 100 gal but not sure of the specific size, and pulling up the plates would be a royal pain. He a fellow loachophile and has clowns, yoyos and horseface loaches in there along with other fish.
