Air pump

Ok I bought a Aqua Culture air pump for my 10 gallon aquarium with an action air treasure chest ornament but realized it was for a 20-60 gallon aquarium. Is there anyway I still can use this by lowering the air pressure so my tank won't be over bubbling and stressing the fish??? It pumps up to 2800cc per minute.

Most fish would not be stressed out by a little extra bubbling.

That being said, if it bothers you they sell a little valve that controls how much air comes out.

Regardless, don't forget to use a check valve.
