Air stone problem
Yesterday, I bought a Top Fin Air Pump AIR-1000, 8ft Air Tubing and a 4" Air Stone... Got home and started setting up to add the air stone to my 10g tank. I cut the tubing (blunt, not diagonally) to the needed length, attached it to the stone and the pump, as tight as possible. I buried the stone under the gravel and plugged in the pump... to see one stream of forceful bubbles, not a gentle diffused flow of smaller bubbles. I pulled the 4' stone from under the gravel to see the bubbles coming from connector into the stone meets the stone and not the stone itself. Did I a) get a bad stone, b) get the wrong size pump for the size of air stone, or c) do something wrong in the setup?
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
