    I have a bubble wand running across the back of my 29 gallon tank..it runs the entire length located down on the gravel...looks very nice...Now the question...do you run these all the time? The tank is an Aqueon 29 gallon with its proper size filter power filter that came with it..it moves water very well and does produce air bubbles but not a lot

    I have an 18" airstone in my 40. It's connected to a gang valve so I can adjust the rate of air flow. I let it run 24/7. Adjusted for good flow but not so much that the bubbles "foam" on the surface. It looks nice and helps with keeping the water circulated.

    The only thing that ever gets turned off on my tanks is the lights. Light is mostly for our viewing pleasure and if you have live plants for them to grow well other than that everything else is for the care of the fish and should be left on 24/7.
