Yes. The air pump doesn't add oxygen - it stirs up the surface. The filter will disturb the surface as well (the one I linked to has different attachments which have different levels of agitation). (Even if your surface is not disturbed, you will still be getting oxygen exchange - having your surface disturbed just makes it quicker).
