I'm setting up a 30 gallon L and I wanted to know if a AC 300 would provide enough added water movement to keep enough oxygen in the tank? My other tank I have a powerhead and I was not planning on putting one in my 30. In the 30 is going to be a 2" possible Rhom (think it's a Rhom
).

Thanks for the replies. I figured the filtration was enough, I was not sure if there would be enough water tension to keep the Oxygen level high enough. I have used power heads before to increase the Oxygen level.

i would add a small power head just for more movement and to make it more like a river

Oxygen gets into the water by surface disruption. When the filter returns water to the tank, there should be a rippling on the water surface that causes the gas exchange.


Adding an airstone will also help.

for a 2" Rhom in a 30 gallon tank you do not need to add extra oxygen

Both of my Rhoms are in 30 gals each with 4" bubblewand and an external filter. They seem happy with the set-up.
