Question do i need an airstone?

I have 2 clown plecos, and I am confused about the whole oxygen thing. They are the only non betta fish I have. Do I need an airstone for them? There are quite a few live plants and a filter in the tank. I do have an airstone but I unplugged it and moved the extension cord elsewhere. Should i get another cord so i can plug it bac in?

Uhm. I don't know for sure, but I have don't use an airstone for them. They seem fine. I have live plants as well, and plants release oxygen, so I"m sure that helps at least a little.


If we are made of cells, then a scientist who studies cells is actually a group of cells studying themcells!
