That's the same design as the Hydro, I have one of these in my QT. I would perhaps reduce the air flow a bit, you can get a valve set for this. If this is your only tank, it is good to have a 2-valve unit, but if you have or may have additional airstone/filters, get a 3 or 4 valve or whatever. One valve goes to the existing tank, and the other is a :"bleeder." A short piece of tubing with an old airstone on the end. Adjust the tank valve to where you want the flow, and the additional air from the pump goes through the bleeder line. Air pumps should always run full, so this allows that while reducing the tank flow.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
