Airy Gator - This systemp provides a way to dramatically increase the dissolved oxygen and circulation. Dissolved oxygen in teh water is the key to maintain a healthy, vibrant aquatic environment. Moving water helps to keep solids suspended in the water and distributes dissolved oxygen, de-stratifying the dissolved oxygen profile in the water column. See the Airy Gator in action in the video below.
