Question Do i have to much air bubbles going on?

I have a 36 gallon bowfront, with 2 airstones running in it, 1 on left side which shoot out of a volcano and 1 on the right that shoots out of a tower house looking thingy :)
Plus the flow from the 2 filters i have running on the back seems like alot of movement in there.
Does this bother the fish?

What kind of fish?

IMO, you can never have to many bubbles, they help add oxygen to the water and look great.

But there are some fish that don't like excess water flow and currents.

Can you "over-oxygenate" water?

i dont think so, but unless the line is hooked to a sponge filter, its really not necessary. airstones and air powered decor, is meant to be decorative. if you have a proper sized HOB filter on your tank, it adds a sufficient amount of oxygen on its own. there are some situations where more oxygen may be neccesary, but thats mostly in regards to treating illness.
