Hi, My 131mm round disc air stone in my 100L tank broke today. It got me thinking, how much aeration do I need for my tank? The temp range on the new heater I purchased is from 18-30 degrees Celsius (it gets down to 2 degrees Celsius inside in the winter). My little 20L tank used to get to 27/28 degrees Celsius in the summer, but haven't had this 100L tank very long so I'm hoping the larger volume of water will keep the tank a little cooler, and ill add cooler water for them if the heat is an issue (we don't have air conditioners, and it can get up to 35 degrees Celsius in the house on the hottest days). I have this air pump http://www.aquaticsupplies.com.au/eheim-adjustable-air-pump-3704-with-hose-and-diffuser-2-x-200l-h.html and am running the two air stones that came with it now, but am more than willing to add more if needed... but that's just it, I don't know what's needed! Can you please offer advice?
Hello everyone! I'm pretty new with the whole fishkeeping concept, and was just wondering if I could just use a bubble wall as something to aerate my aquarium. Is this okay, or do I need more things to aerate the tank like air stones? Thanks for the help!
Hey guys i have a pretty moderate - high planted tank... i was wondering about Co2 and aeration?? i know i cant have the air pump running while injecting Co2.. so i was wondering.. do i turn off the air pump during the day and put the co2 ON? and at night do i reverse it? turn co2 off and oxygen on?? i figure plants dont produce O2 at night?? and so the air pump would be a good idea for fish? or am i mistaken?? what do i do?? co2 on all the time? even at night? HELP! confused..
