Thank you brhino. That is very helpful and answers my question. The downstream part makes a lot of sense.

Hello, I'm Brian and live in the Portland, OR area. About 6 months ago I was given an established aquarium from my father in law. It's a 30g FW. It has a power filter and I do have an air pump...
