I believe air pumps or air stones are largely a matter of preference. I have them on my tanks because I run sponge filters. I also like them because in the event of a power failure the filters sometimes don't resume operation without priming the pumps. The air stones however resume operation the moment power is restored. You can also buy air pumps that activate automatically when power is lost thereby ensuring that the fish have oxygen being deliveredeven though power has been lost. They require small inexpensive batteries. Pretty cheap insurance if you ask me.
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
