I want to get an airstone for my tank. Do I just need to buy the airstone from the LFS. Or do I need to buy something else for the airstone to work? When I had my powerhead at the top of my tank my p's were scared shi*less so I took it out. Do you think the airstone will scare them also?

shouldn't mine love the bubbles from the powerhead they get upset if i turn them off. i like the air things that make a wall of bubbles. all you need is the air compressor some tube and the air stick or air stone.

i have 2 four inch air stones and buried them in my rocks. work great. although the tubing can get in the way unless you try to hide it. but definitely worth it. i got an air pump for like 8 bucks, a valve for water backup for 2 bucks, and tubing for like a dollar. :smile:

yes i would recommend getting a airstone i have a 803 pump paid $25.00 canadian i found anything smaller doesnt work good for a 12'' long stone. make sure you spend an extra $1.50 for a check valve it will iliminate water to sifon out if your pump shuts off.so you can hide it underneath your stand so it's quite.

definately get the water back up valve. It will save your pump. I have a bubb;e disk and three 8" bubb;e wands in my community tank in the living room. My fish love it, I guess it massages them. And it's great eye candy.

I've got a 12" in mine and they play through the bubbles all the time. One of the guys at my lfs said it would drive them crazy...it did his. Depends on the fish.
