To give everyone a better picture of what I have going on (should have said this up front), I have two Aquaball powerheads aimed up, near the surface, that add a slight ripple to the water. Nothing dramatic for sure. Otherwise, the spraybar on my filter is four inches or so below the water line and doesn't disturb the surface of the water very much.
The tank is heavily planted now (just started it, so will become more so as time goes by of course) and I eventually plan to have a good size school of tetras and a school of cories, as well as some shrimp (no animals right now at all, though). Tank is 65 gallons, with CO2 added via a Atomic diffuser.
So, I'm gathering the airstone would indeed be a good idea prior to getting fish, yes?
