My oscars are getting big and I noticed they're getting "gaspy" perhaps not enough aeration? I was thinking about adding a powerhead. Powerhead VS bubbler I'd perfer the powerhead for a natural look. Opinions are welcome and needed on is this an accurate desicion as well what brands and size or any other advice. THANKS
The surface agitation allows gas exchange by dispersing the CO2. I'd certainly go with powerheads rather than a bubbler although even bubblers are useful in some situations. If you do not have a generator, invest in a battery operated airpump, extra packs of batteries, tubing and airstones aside from getting your new powerhead.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Were it me, (and it ain't) I would maybe consider adding more filtration for the two Oscars in addition to the Eheim classic you have unless it is in the size range of the Eheim 2128. The Oscars will continue to grow and would appreciate filter or filters, that can move six to eight times the number of gallons the tank holds each hour. 75x6 is 450 gal per hour. Lowering the water level in the tank may also provide a bit more oxygen exchange in addition to airstones,bubblers ,etc.
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
what size tank? my oscars are getting big as well... i run an eheim classic 2215 and a 2217 as well as an xp4 set up as a water polisher containing only descening sizes of filter pads and floss..i also have two large bubble disks. all the filters use spray bars to assure surface aggitiation.
