Is there an air stone on the end of that hose of just a hose stuck in the bucket. The pic shows only a few big bubbles and smaller, more numerous bubbles carry more oxygen. Also, oxygen transfer takes place on the surface of the water so if foam accumulates or bubbles are not breaking the surface very little O2 will be in the water.

Do be aware of cloudy/stinky water. That means waste products have built up and water needs to be changed. Any store that sells aquarium products will have a decent aerator for 15 -20 bucks. Pick one...

I use a rechargeable aerator with intermittent aeration.

Bonus: can go on for days.

Yeah. Was tired of constantly replacing batteries. Rechargeable is the way to go!

The intermittent aeration reduces the super saturation of nitrogen in the water.
