Agree, plants. But more to the point, this should not be necessary. Provided the tank is not overcrowded, the normal surface exchange of oxygen/CO2 will be sufficient for the fish unless of course they are high-oxygen requiring fish and then the aquascape would take this into account and provide a stronger current, etc.

If you have reason to think there is a shortage of oxygen, there is some problem causing it, and that should be investigated.

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]
