Added a Circulation Pump, Do I still need my Airstone Pump?
 
I have a 46 Gallon Tank with about 40 lbs of live rock. I have two clowns, a blenny and a Coral Beauty. The tank measures 36"Wx20"HX15"Deep.

I just got a 750GPH Koralia Evolution Circulation Pump and it seems pretty powerful, I am not sure if its too powerful for my tank size. The recommended size for that pump is 30-50 gallons. I placed it in the top corner and angled it up and against the side wall.

I am wondering if I still need to keep the air pump/air stone going because the circulation pump just shoots all the bubbles all over the tank, making it kind of cloudy. Does the circulation pump help add enough oxygen into the water?
