As you can see, drilling a hole in the top of the filter head and pushing a piece of air line through (which needs to reach above water level for air to get in) will create a simple way to oxygenate your tank :)

jsut as a warning, it is probably better to detatch the head of the filter from the body before drilling a hole, as you can see where you are drilling too. :D

You will be better to drill the hole in the pump outlet and attache the airline there. The probelm with injecting the air directly into the pump is if the air can destroy the impellor. Paul
