    Good morning fish lovers
    Happy 4th of July everyone
    I have a tetra rated for 40 gallons
    Am just wondering. Does my air pump absolutely need to be on

    I wouldn't think absolutely... but I would have it on, even if its on a low setting, just so your fish doesn't look like this....

    I'll put it on low and cause my air line is connected to a volcano. So bubbles comes out. It's pretty cool

    If your filter breaks the surface of the tank (causes surface agitation), then a bubbler usually isn't needed.
