The only way I know how to work an airstone is with a pump.....
Did you turn your filter off? what size is the tank?

Filter stays on 24/7. And the tank is a 10g. I rinsed it lots of times with vinegar before I set it up (back in January).

Is the filter flow so that it hits the surface of the water to break the surface scum up?

The nozzle only turns side to side. I wish it went up. But there is a little covered hole that says 'air', so if I put a tube in it maybe I can get the air stone to work.

Duetto 50. I don't have the link. My dad bought it a while ago.

This link has better information on it use under "more information" and "testimonials"
http://www.fosterandsmithaquatics.co...32&pcatid=3632

Read that and see if you can't fix it so that it works better to rid the tank of the surface oils

I didn't know the water outlet could lift up (like I said, my dad bought it a while ago so we don't have the instructions anymore). I will try to do that and see if it helps.
Thanks!
