Not an ideal setup but it gets the job done.

Isn't that a power head? My mixing bucket was a simple heater in a my old bio cube return pump. I say add a heater and call it day. No need to get fancy.

Just my opinion.

I meant a circulation pump. That is a needle wheel pump off of my skimmer. I had to lay it on its side so it didn't spray out. I thought about getting a piece of hose and using it to pump the, water into the tank

I thought about hooking the airline to the pump. I wondered if the bubbles would help it mix better

The bubbles would help. It will keep the water oxygenated.
