Soaking airstones and uneven bubble distribution

Recommended Posts

Spent the last while frustrated and thinking about why my new airstone was only putting out bubbles near the top. I wanted a pretty 'bubble curtain' thing like I see online. 😄 ... Err, but I also wanted to do it for like $4 so i got a long thin single-barb airstone from LFS.

A bit of googling later, I found out I might need to soak it in my tank for a day, or as some other guy on the internet said "up to a week for it to be optimum".

Soaking my airstone now. Seeing if this helps.

Posting here, because I searched for thing like airstone soaking and airstone uneven bubbles etc and didn't find anything. Just adding data to the pile. 

"go soak your airstone" sounds like a pretty nermy diss. 😄

Yup yup! Those little ziss airstones are great. Very clever no-clog mechanism. I run that and a USB Nano Air Pump on my little hexagon tank. There is a post somewhere in the forums about it. Its honestly the best airstone I have had.

I do wonder where the air intake on the USB Nano Air Pump is though. I can't seem to find it.  I suppose that is another topic though. 😄
