As supersaturation problems in fish are related to total gas pressure and
the partial pressures of O2 and N2 + Ar and the age of the animal (larval
stages are different that adult in the mass transport of O2), it isn't
clear what you are trying to do.  However, you will require a pumped
system to do any supersaturation experiments.  The design is straight
forward once you know what you want to do, however you will need good

to find any information on oxygen supersaturation for a small research
facility.  I was wondering if you might point me in the right direction
on how one would superstaturate an aquarium rather than a hatcery tank.
