New to the forum. 8-)


I am putting up a 36 gal freshwater aquarium. I have not done this for 30 years. My goal is to have a planted tank - ignore the castle my son is pushing on me. At this point I'm still collecting the "hardware" for this. Well, I'm waiting on the stand to show up. So, right now I'm just collecting and testing all the "stuff". And putting my list of fish together.

One minor thing. I'd like to put some air stones in the tank. What size air pump do I need and how many air stones do you put in? I can't seem to find that anywhere.

Welcome to AA!

I don't like to use air stones in a planted tank because I feel like it moves my plants too much, I like for my plants to look peaceful, not much movement.
They sell them at petsmart, if you really want one I would get one meant for 30 gallons, so there isn't an exaggerated movement
