Airstones make a very noticeable difference in every aquarium. Beyond adding visual interest by releasing cascading streams of bubbles that can cause beautiful tricks of light and water, airstones also serve a very important purpose in maintaining the overall health of your aquarium environment. Releasing oxygen into the water via bubbles helps aerate your aquarium water, providing more life-giving oxygen for your fish and plants. In addition, the disturbance caused by the bubbles, however mild, plays an important role in helping the water circulate and avoid becoming stagnant. Airstones are easy to use and require virtually no effort to put to use in your aquarium tank.

Air stones can be placed anywhere in a fish tank, there are almost no limitations as to position and numbers of used devices. The device is connected to the air pump via airline which makes it possible to pump air from outside through the pump to the air stone. There’s a motor which drives propeller that sucks air which is then pumped to an air stone. As an aquarium air stone is a lightweight device which is full of little holes intended for displacing air into the water, air is being released into an aquarium once the pump is plugged into electricity and turned on.

Precisely how effective are those small bubbles which come out from air stones, or diffusers? A number of aquarists believe that they perform a crucial role inside the with regards to oxygenation and air diffusion of the water, and that this air source is sufficient. When it comes to the rise of DO (dissolved oxygen) in a fish tank, the water surface is one of the main sites where this exchange takes place. Oxygen is blended down into the water; carbon dioxide is released out to the air, not forgetting that other gases readily pass through the permeable surface of water at the same time. This is the principle which our bodies work on whenever we breathe; inhale good air and exhale bad air. It’s the same manner with the fish tank.Now that you have known all the benefits of air stones as well as some of its negative sides, you will be able to set up your aquarium completely.
