Are you talking circulation or surface disturbance. If you want less surface areation, such as when adding co2, use like a Rio 50 power head. They work much better on a UGF than a air pump anyway, and you can direct the output and you can turn the flow way down. You can also install a inline valve on your air line, but the UGF might not be as efficient.

Welcome!!!

For my sisters small tank I use the Rena Air 50, its really small and quiet, also I suggest you buy a control valve so you can increace/decreace the ammount of air going into the airstone or whatever it might be.

Good Luck
