It's very advisable, and you were correct to think it!

Craigs list, local free ads online and the newspaper rule.
I've bought:
full 125 set up (oak stand, canopy, lights filters, the works) 400
full 125 set up (same) 200
full 100 set up (same) 200and that's just the tip of the iceburg. I have 18 tanksand only three were purchased new.
Sorry for the spam!

Well I ran to wally world to purchase an airpump, that is one heck of an effect! I went with the bubble wall, unfortunately through the installation and activation process, my oscar fleed and scratched his side (not to bad). Now they actually appear to really like it. The water movement is much more obvious and the entire backwall looks like a stream of bubbles. :)

**Update**

Sylvio's colors have really started to stand out since installing the airpump! He swims around a little more and hides much, much less. At first I was worried that there was too much water activity, but now that I'm used to the bubbles it looks like it's fine, he loves swimming through the bubbles.
