airstone too much?

I have a 30 gallon aquarium. I had my airstone in a cabin decoration with only 2 holes to let bubbles out. I bought a coral with a lot of holes coming out and it seems to affect the fish, especially my anglefish and black moor. I unplugged it, are there any tricks to making the airflow less intense? I like how it looks with the bubbles but don't want the current tearing up my fish. Thank you so much!

Not sure if yours has it but on my air pump there is a dial you can turn to increase or decrease the volume of bubbles. If not move the stone to one end of the tank and the fish that like it will go up that end and the dish that don't will steer clear. That way you can still have the bubbles which as well as looking good will also add dissolved oxygen to your tank
