Would this air stones be sufficient?

140l of nutes there is 4 in a pack

I won't be using there pump though

Or maybe these
Those are way small. Buy bigger airstones so they doesn't get clogged right away. I like running a waterfall in the return reservoir and tiny amounts of aeration added in each bucket. A bigger airstone will diffuse better.

I like the round ones. Cut the hoses instead of pulling them apart after a cycle. It will save your airstones, they break very easily at the connection. Better to cut of a small piece of clear hose instead of destroying the stones. A small exacto knife is a good tool to remove the last part of hose. Cheers!

Forgot about those! Thanks for sharing, been a while since I saw them around. Wonder where my old ones went? Lol! Never found new ones to order, one of the few good thing I got from the local hydro store. Cheers!

the bubbles are supposed to be very fine/tiny.
I do that kind of thing and then try to remind myself to try and stay toward the middle but this girl just can't pass up a 'deal' :roll:

I have a question for the wet people. Why are you buying noisy air pumps and stones?? We ran power heads in our reservoirs. More air and less noise and price.

Less moving parts and a high quality air pump will probably last longer than any power head. Power heads also heat the water to some degree while air pumps and stones don't.

If you say so. Never failed and sog was a money maker. I respect you, but here is leveling of the bubble. how many enclosed eco systems and fish supporting plant grows?

And just an F.Y.I. a power head has a magnetic impeller. About two less than your air pump. May I see more smarter than my old ass? Actually messing with you. Truth here still. Aquariums and bio organics before most had a clue.

I stand corrected! We're all here to learn. There's pros and cons with most things in life. It's all good as long as it gets the job done, cheers!

I wasn't familiar with powerheads but I can relate to noise from my air pump so I googled them they look ideal so I'm wanting to try one, I need one for a 12/14ltr aero cloner would you mind having a look to see if theres anything suitable here?

Cheers!

I did tiny 301's to giant 701's. Old tech with great results.
