8" wand airstone

Where do I buy the airstone????? It is like driving a car with no windshield...There's just something missing!

Answer from Stella:

Hi West, in our mini farm plans, we stated these could be found at Walmart. They actually are an easy-to-find item. The wand or round types can be found at any pet shop. Or you can order an 8" wand here:
8'' Air Stone


Hope this helps!

Try pet stores

Aquarium air stones are often sold at Petco or Petsmart-type places, as well as smaller, more specialized aquarium stores. As far as I know, there is no difference between a "hydroponic" airstone and an "aquarium" airstone, so don't let the fancy labels sway you. You will get what you pay for, however, so don't expect the "three pack for a buck-ninety-five" from the bargain bin to perform just as well as a fancy-pants bubble ring.

Tangentally related: Airstones can be somewhat frail, so consider them permanently attached to the air line. Chances are good that the average airstone will disintegrate if you try to remove it.

From editor:

Thanks for the input! I also found them at Walmart, a 10" long airstone for $2.58, not top of the line, but might do.
