Hey guys i have a 10 gallon with my first lil boy, obsidian, in it and i was wondering if the airstone was needed for his tank. i asked my mom and she said it was needed to give the bacteria in the tank air and what not and that i shouldnt take it out. I on the other hand was worried my boy wouldnt make bubble nests because he sees the bubbles from the air stone on the top of the water already and will not make one or something like that ( yeah i know i think of some crazy stuff)
so i was wondering since i have not live plants in the tank if i need to keep the air stone in ? or if i can eventualy take it out.
AND second question is , do any of you guys have an air stone or bubbler in the tank and if so do your boys still make a bubble nest with it in there? yeah i think that covers it lol
