Hi All, Could you please tell me if I should turn the Air Bubbles off in my tank when I put it's light out at night or should I just leave them on 24/7?, I have the air bubble curtain, It is a 200 litre tank (44 Gallon's).

Thanks.

Steve.

You can leave it on 24/7 Steve. If you have a problem with the noise, turn it off around 9pm and resume it around 9am - won't make that big a difference.

Steve, it'd be really useful to know what the tank is stocked with. Maybe you don't need the air curtain at all. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Hi Matt, I have it mainly because it looks good and it will put more oxygen in the water.

It doesn't necessarily "put more oxygen in to the water", it just disrupts the surface of the water which allows for better gaseous exchange (oxygen and CO2) which can allow more dissolved oxygen in to the aquarium.

If you have a filter which disturbs the surface already, you'll probably find your airstone isn't making much of a difference.
