Oxygen And Air Stone

Hi! New here, I've tried searching(bar and browsing) but can't find anything on air stones or wave makers or things to get oxygen back into water. I was told air stones, with lots of bubbles, but have watched youtube vids of wave makers?

What do you use? Recommend?

Kind of new to cichlids, given to us by my sister, they are orange mbuna. Really fun to watch. I'm still learning and trying to read/watch youtube to learn more!

Thanks!

I personally love the Hydor Wavemaker series, they work well. I just use a air pump with an air stone for bubbles, not too hard there.

Greetings and welcome to Fishlore

It is the surface area that determines the gas exchange. The greater the surface area the greater the gas exchange. Bubblers, wave makers, waterfall filters and the jet from canisters all increase surface area in different ways.
