is looking good. Per some suggestions, im going to be investing in some new bulbs, DIY CO2 and eventually a canister filter. I was wondering though, Do I need an air-stone? I have a pump and airstone, I just don't like it. The pump is kind of loud and all the bubbles are too much. Is it a necessity or just astetics on a 55g? I thought the bubbles would cause more co2 loss? Thanks for the help!
