I don't think there is a rule of thumb as far as that goes. However if you notice unusual breathing from the fish or them gasping at the surface then there isn't enough air in the water. If this isn't the case and you said you have some surface disturbance you might be alright with out one. Though I would probably still get a small one and stick in there somewhere. It wouldn't hurt.
