| || | I cant say that plants suffocating has ever been a problem for me. I notice there is allot of confusion about airstones. An airstone can be just for aesthetics, also it can create water circulation effectively, and it can increase the rate that gases are exchanged between the air and the water. Though none of these things are required with adequate filtration, they certainly donít hurt (assuming no CO2 injection). A simple airstone can provide the extra insurance youíre looking for. Unless you donít like bubbles, itís the most reasonable way to go.

I just want to ensure that my plants can breath. I eventually want to get more. I only keep them on the far sides by the glass. My filter is an Aqueon 30 gallon filter. I know it's good for the left side where it's at, but the right side has more plants. And I've read on here that bubblers/airstones don't do much to aide life - just aesthetics.
