i would adjust it so the bubbles just make the skinny neck part. i hope you don't have a big tank! they did away with the air stone skimmers because the stones didn't last very long. now they have venturi skimmers with needle wheels that are quite efficient.

its a shame the stones clog up too, in my opinion nothing beats the airstones as far as bubble volume and bubble size

Hi

Thanks for the advise. I only really bought this because it was cheap. As it was my marine tank i kinda took what the petshop said to buy. But im learning a real lot quick from sites like these. And we all gotta start somewhere!
