Large Ball Air Stone Ball 5cm
They turn the air from any air pump into fine air bubbles to assist in maximising the oxygen level in your aquarium by moving water to the surface.
Oxygen is vital to aquarium life. It allows your fish to breath and is also essential for the survival and reproduction of the aerobic bacteria that power your nitrate cycle keeping your aquarium healthy. Aside from all that, it looks pretty good too. Overstocking can be a major cause of low oxygen levels making the addition of more air essential. Cold water retains oxygen better than tropical water as the levels of retention decrease by scale as temperature increases. The same is also true of salt water with increasing levels of salinity resulting in lower retained oxygen levels. Atmospheric pressure also affects oxygen retention with low air pressure resulting in loss of oxygen.
Studies have shown adequate oxygen levels for most aquariums to be 8.3PPM in freshwater and 7.0 to 6.4PPM in saltwater and a great way to distribute air throughout your aquarium is by using our Large Ball Air Stone Ball 5cm
These air stones are ideal for adding accents in any aquarium. The air stone diffuses air, creating water movement creating a stunning curtain of moving air. It also increases surface agitation, accelerates oxygen replenishment and helps release the build up of carbon dioxide.
