They can do without the airstone...O2 from the plants should be enough. Don't complicate it too much. I've had a tupperware with no substrate and just some Java fern and moss for the last three years...

You can get away with two T5HO 54w. I've been using a Tek two bulb lamp for years now on a 55. There are plenty of plants that will do just fine even without CO2. Good luck.
