I needed to add an airstone to my tank because I added ghost shrimp. I was trying to think of a way I can break the current at least in some section of the tank so that my fish can still build bubblenests if he wants. The airstone isn't remotely strong and I have a basic check valve on it, but of course anything stirs up the surface significantly.
I have a divided 10 gallon tank and one side houses the filter and the other side houses the airstone. I have a water bottle baffle on my filter which allows for the area in front of the bottle to be pretty much completely still, and it made me think maybe there's some way I can similarly baffle the current caused by the airstone...but beyond that I'm not very creative
Has anybody attempted something like this? Any ideas I can try...it must look good in my tank though, my tank is my baby!
