shooting oxygen into the water, will just bubble to the surface exactly like dan3321 states. the bubbles will disrupt the surface, helping the gas exchange, which is the same result as using a powerhead to disrupt the surface, without the cost. even if you used a bubble diffuser of some sort i dont think it would be anymore effective then good water circulation and a proper stocking attitude.
welcome to the forum.
That is how my tank is set up and thank you. If I put an air stone in the tank would it be more effective in the tank or in the sump next to my pump? I would prefer to not have any hoakey bubbles coming up out of my display. Thanks for all the input. Bruce
