Well I have never had one of those filters, so you may want to ask again in the hardware/equipment section. I don't see how you would run an air stone off of it, you'll need something that pushes air not water. I looked the u2 up online and that's what I came up with but I could be wrong. Now it does have a place on the output to adjust to pull air in and make bubbles if that's what your looking for.
