Air bubbles help

Hi y'all I have a 150g freshwater tank with a 40g wet dry filter! I have a big clam that makes big bubbles but I have an air stone in the other corner! The air stone makes a lot of bubbles so much that my overflow gets bubbles in it! I was wondering if I can put that air stone in my sump? That way I don't get any bubbles in my overflow! Thanks

What's your goal with the bubbles? They are mainly just used as decor and are in no means necessary.

So my sump and wet dry filter will be enough air for my fish?

Na.. If you have good surface agitation you don't need them.
