oxygen intake

how much oxygen do most of u guys and gals allow your ph to let in??? when i look at most videos most people dont have many bubbles in there tanks

how should regulate the oxygen i can add with the power-head? there is also one on my protein skimmer but i dont need to worry about that because i would be using the protein skimmer for about a month or so.

tia

The way you aerate your tank is surface aggitation. Point a PH slightly toward the surface and let it aggitate it. Air bubbles do nothing to aerate the tank except when they go to the surface and then they break slightly moving the water around but not enough.

As melosu58 says, powerhead to agitate surface or protein skimmer usually does the oxygenation for you too..
