Hey guys

So I bought a tiny 3 gallon filter that came with an air pump used to connect to it.

I no longer need the filter so I was wondering if I can use that air pump to connect to an 8-10 inch air stone/ air bar.

Would I get a decent amount of bubbles? Would it help if I buried it under the gravel to produce bigger bubbles?
The pump can literally fit into my palm as it is a small one

29 gallon high is the tank size.

Thanks

heh... we figured this out through trial & error & finally realised it's exactly the same principles as scuba diving.

the amount of bubbles you get depends on:

*the length (& width) of the air tube
*the depth of the air stone (& how big it is)
*the gruntiness of the air pump

so it depends. if you have a short tube & don't put the stone in too deep, you'll get more bubbles

edit: also, if you raise the pump above the water level you'll get more air
