Depends on the fish you have and how much oxygen they need. But in most cases I would say no, as water falling into a pool (dams, water falls, filters) is one way to oxygenate water. If you have Oscars, or other fish that I have been told need high oxygen than possibly not.

ive never had to use a bubbler b4. The filter waves were more than enough to oxgenate my tank..

I only use an airstone at night, since my tanks are all planted somewhat heavily. For a non-planted tank, I've never had to use any air bubbles. HOB filters normally oxygenate the water thoroughly
