Any thoughts or advice?

Airstones don't work the way most people think they do. What they do is provide current in the tank to get the water circulating. The surface of the tank is where all your oxygenatin occurs, the airstone gets a current going o that the poorly oxygentated water on the bottom of the tank circulates to the top of the tank where the oxygen exchange occurs. Airstones are pretty essential for deep tanks, otherwise the water on the bottom of the tank never surfaces. In regular sized tanks it still helps but it isn't absolutely essential, the more heavily stocked your tank is, the more you should think about getting one though. If you have any "dead" spots in the tank they will take care of them nicely.
