Hi everyone,

I'm about to set up my pressurized Co2 in my 55, and currently I have an airstone in there. I thought I read somewhere that you shouldn't have airstones in tanks with pressurized Co2. I know its best to have surface agitation, which I should be ok, as I have the spray bar at the surface, but is it also best to remove the airstone once it's set up?

You would run either, co2 on a day cycle and air atone on the night cycle as not to suffocate the animals in the tank. There's no benefit to running simultaneously as it would be counterproductive.
