Air pump goldfish?

Do I need an airpump for a 60 gallon tank with 4 fancy goldfish? I have a marineland penguin 200 b hang on back filter and an ehiem ecco 2234 which are both made for 60 gallon aquariums and and filter 600 gallons per hour

You probably don't need one but it won't hurt anything. I have a small air pump on my 55 gal goldfish tank in the summer because the water gets so warm. Goldfish have pretty high oxygen requirements and it never hurts to have a little more water circulation in the tank.
