It depends on the size of tank, the effect you want and if your fish can handle the bubbles (some sensitive fish can be damaged if they try swimming through bubbles) :)
All the advice I give is based on my own personal 30 years of experience.

Thank you for your reply.
The tank is about 25 litres, but i guess maybe I shouldn't get an air pump because I'm looking at getting a betta which presumably would get damaged by the bubbles, am I right?
Any help is much appreciated, thanks

Bettas do not like a lot of water movement. A few lazy bubbles in a corner would be fine but nothing too vigorous.
