If your filter provides enough circulation then there should be enough aeration for your fish so I think there would be no problem.


Again, be sure your filter is rated for your tank or bigger than your tank.

My filter is rated 800L per hour my tank is 285L.. I like the bubble look and also getting a little surface scum so more aeration would b good

You can put the air pump on a timer, but I would buy a check valve too just in case water gets pushed back into the pump when it turns off/on the valve will stop it from happening.

Mine is on a timer to come on at night. I use pressurized co2 and don't want it building up at night when the lights are off and the plants aren't absorbing it. Just a precautionary measure
