There was a guy behind a counter in your aquarium??? lol
A pump/air stone facilitates the carbon dioxide/oxygen gas exchange rates (as the bubbles break the surface) providing more oxygen in the water. If one was only thinking about available oxygen relative to stock level, we could conclude that more oxygen would allow more fish. However, an appropriate stock level is dependent on numerous variables, with O2
only one of many.
