Do i need a airstone in my 10 gallon tank? i have a internal power filter stuck to the back right of the tank and it does slightly move the top of the water in a clock wise direction? just been reading forums questions and answers and its a bit confusing?

cheers

Adding an airstone is always beneficial as it provided more oxygen which is very essential for any fish in the tank
So you may add one buddy

If the filter provides enough surface agitation then you don't need to.As i said it is optional and doesn't have any side effects.It only helps to provide more oxygen.
What fishes you have in your tank and how many?

You don't have to youse one. But the do provide more oxygen so it is better to have one.

If you have a good filter you don't need one. When I started my tank I had air stones. I took them off after about a month do to the noise they made. I've been 4 months without air stones.
