I did but I made my own, I bought the airline, the air pumps (Tetra Whisper 10g for my 5.5g, 20g for my 10g & a 40g to supply air to 2 10g tanks) & a box of Aquaclear (now Fluval) sponges & airline clips. I don't know of a kit that comes with everything but there could be. I like it so much better & I think the boys all do as well, much less water agitation & the tank is actually more open/lighter. Since your tank has been set for a while you should have some BB built up in the water, substrate & plants so it should cycle a little faster than if starting from scratch.
