Nano Tank Question

Hey All,

Does putting a bubbler at the top of a 10g tank to cause some disturbance on the surface of the water bad for my plants in this size of a tank? (I guess to much oxygen in tank or something). Will it mess up my DIY CO2 absorption rate where I would have to add more yeast/sugar to have more CO2 bubbles. Currently my CO2 has about 20 bubbles per min coming out of it.

Thanks.

If i were you I'd just put the bubbler at night when the lights are off. I'm not really sure tho cause I never used a bubbler before.

Why do you want an airstone? As long as your fish aren't gasping for breath, they shouldn't need one.

At 20 bubbles per minute from DIY CO2, I dont think that an airstone is necessary unless your tank is very overstocked.
