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?

A bubble stone does NOT expel CO2 from the water. This is a widespread misconception in the hobby! CO2 and O2 are not related to each other in the water. Depending on the degree of saturation and the partial pressure gradient, they dissolve into air. Please bear in mind that we do not add pure oxygen to the aquarium, and instead add an air mixture of nitrogen, CO2, O2 and other components. When air pumps are used for ventilation, there is only an expulsion effect as a result of the enlarged surface of air/water if CO2 is added, to the effect that the partial pressure in the water is higher than in the air. This cannot be quantified without expending significant time and effort on metrology.
