      It takes a lot of surface agitation to match a simple air stone.

      As long as people keep saying yes, are you gonna keep cutting it down?
      More is better...less not as good.

      If the surface agitation bothers you, you can always turn it off occasionally to view your fish. I always turn off the air diffuser in my pond when I feed the fish. I do it mainly so the food days put rather than getting pushed to the side by the bubbles. But it's nice to see all the fish on the calm surface too.
