I agree with Andy. You do not need a air stone.

Usually you don't, if you want one then go get one. It wont hurt anything. Biggest thing is to watch the fish and make sure they aren't gasping for air. If they look like they're doing fine I wouldn't worry about it.

Sounds good to me. As long as the water is being agitated your fine. Those bubblers are more for viewing

They don't actually provide oxygen in the water for the fish?

That's a very debatable topic. Most say no, that they do nothing. I don't have an answer for you sorry. All I know is I don't use one.
