hi. ill be putting fish in my recently cycled tank and was wondering if I needed an airpump and airstone for the 20 gal. all that's being used is a whisper 20 power filter. will that provide enough oxygen?
an airstone would be best for any tank.. for a 20g, a bubble wand or long airstone would be excellent.
I have a 10 gallon fish only freshwater aquarium. I was wondering if an air pump was a necessity. If so, could anybody suggest one that I could get from Petsmart ? Also, what type of airstone should I get?
Thanks for all the help. I think I'll get a strip for behind my cave made of three rocks. Do you need a check valve for a pump? I've heard about those but don't know what they really are.
+1 all of you come to think of it you shouuld get one it has improved my tanks clearity and made my fish happier(fresher air)
So do you have to change the airstone every month?
I have never heard that. Over time they will fall apart and/or become clogged with algae. When that happens, replace them but I wouldn't before that happens.
