Increasing an air stones effect? Will somebody confirm
I use a hang on back 70 gph filter on my 55 gal. Under the lid there are 2 compartments. 1 where the power head sits under, then a divider with holes to let water into the bottom the the filter media.
I'm sure most of you are familiar with this.
I have a 10gal air pump, and I was thinking, since a limited amount of water can actually move through that small area at one time, if I put my stone in that small compartment I can hyper oxygenate the water right before it goes through the filter.
Am I right in thinking that this would greatly increase the efficiency of the air pump? It is oxygenating a far smaller quantity of water at 1 time, but it's in a flow, and heavily oxygenated.
