Air stones/curtains that I know of and have seen need an air source attached to them, they have to get air to them somehow right? What is the make and model of the air curtain? Perhaps a picture of the item might help us identify it... But as far as I know, all air stones/curtains need to be attached to your air pump.
In regards to your filter, what is the level of your water? I use an external 30 to 60gal filter along with an internal 10 to 30gal filter in my 30gal tank, so obviously, it would be considered "overkill". But I find that it is ok for the fish.
I have to keep my water level high, as I find that when it gets low, that it creates a "falls" effect and creates more turbulance in the water.
So I guess my question for you would be; Is the level of water in your tank high enough? If it is, and that is causing a TON of turbulance, than I would guess most likely your filter is too big.
Again, anyway you can post a pic of your setup?
