Running Airstones

Hello baldy...

I have several 55 G low light, low tech, planted tanks and run one small airstone in each 24/7. It keeps the surface water moving and the tank aerated and just looks good. No need to turn it off, just let it run.

As far as the plants are concerned a small airstone is fine. Too many airstones running will produce a lot of oxygen in the tank and a high oxygen environment isn't good for your plants.

As always, just one old "water keeper's" opinion.
