will this help my tank
I have bought an Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Micro-Bubbler 6"
and wonder will it hurt my fish and will it help my tank ?
Re: will this help my tank
If it's an airstone it shouldn't hurt anything unless you're trying to grow plants. I only run airstones at night because that's when plants use oxygen instead of carbon dioxide.
if its just a airstone your fine.
unless you are keeping fish that are sensitive to the extra current the airstone will cause I don't see it as being a problem. I don't use one in my main tank but all of my smaller breeding tanks have one in them and I don't have any problems. And even in my main tank this is one planted just under the substrate in case I'm ever in need of emergency aeration.
Please note that very little oxygenation is derived from the air bubbles.
The turbulence on the water surface generates the significant exchange of atmospheric gases into the tank water.
