    Hi All,

    I have a Juwel Rio 240L fully standard, is this going to be good enough for a single oscar, with no tankmates. I am just wandering if the filter will be man enough

    Cheers

    Air Stone

    Hi all,

    Does my tank need an air stone? My pump circulates the water Ok, but doesn't provide much in the way of agitation, i.e. there aren't any bubbles or anything whilst its running?

    thanks...
