Help! Air Pump or Air Stone?

Hi all! I currently have a couple goldfish in my 30 gallon tank and I wanted to have more aeration since the pump doesn't really add enough oxygen into the tank. I don't know anything about air pump or air stones nor the difference? Can anyone give me advice as to which one I should get and then what brands I should look for? The size would also help! Thank you so much!

So does that mean I can not get a air stone unless I get an air pump?

+1. You buy the pump, connect them to the air stones using tubing. I got my whole set for my 55 gallon for 40 bucks. You can get a small little airstones for 2 bucks though. I bought 3 long wands to stretch across my entire tank. 25-30 bucks probably
