Product information

Air pump accessory for aquariums
At night an air pump with air stone is an advantage for the aquarium because plants without light don’t produce oxygen, but continue to consume it. In thinly planted aquariums the air pump with air stone supplies the necessary water circulation. In aquariums with dense planting the air pump provides the aquarium with oxygen at night, since the number of plants means the oxygen concentration can drop to a dangerous level. When disease is present in the aquarium the air pump increases the oxygen level in the water, which is essential for many medications.

Simple connection
Connect the air stone to the hose of the air pump (not included), place the air stone inside the pond or aquarium. The own weight of the air stone keeps it on the ground.

FAQ
How can I remove the hose from the device?

At first the air hoses and special CO2 hoses can easily be pushed on the connection piece. The hoses harden more and more as the months go on and can only be removed from the connection piece using great force. If you pull the hose hard it will only strain the connection, which could, in the worst case, even break off. Instead cut the hoses you want to remove laterally at the ends and carefully remove them. For this it’s always advisable to install hoses with some reserve in its hose length.

Does the use of bubble stones and a strong current expel the important plant nutrient, CO2, from the water?

During aeration and/or when there is a strong current, a gas equilibrium is achieved between the ambient air and the water As a result a corresponding but very low CO2 content occurs too. BUT this low CO2 content is far too low to for most aquarium plants to thrive. The aquarium owner is therefore dependent on an additional CO2 supply by a CO2 fertiliser system. The higher CO2 content this achieves is reduced or, as commonly referred to in aquatics, expelled by the aeration and strong current. Therefore well planted aquariums should only be slightly aerated at night, if required.
