Advice for DIY bubbler tank decoration

I have this great idea to make a bubbler out of the top of a table top fountain that I haven't used in years. The air line works just fine, I have cut the piece to size. The question I have is what type of air pump to use. I have a HOB filter so this is not a required addition, I just want to add it for decoration. I have a 55 gallon bow front, the tank is about 19.5" deep. Would I need to get a deep water pump, or could I get by with a regular one? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any advice!

Get an air pump from your LFS. Not too expensive. They make them for all different tank sizes.

Something like this.
