    It is a performance issue, so try the tank with and without the aerator and see how the fish respond. There is no rule that says 100% of the time you should do it this way or the other, you just...

    Maybe you can swap out the order, but if not, it might still be useful, or worst case, you can use it when you do have the tank up and running.

    Also, I believe they actually have 2 versions of Rydit, which did you buy?
