If the water is oxygen depraived the fish will mouth at the surface as if "gasping for air"...

Heavy breathing may be a sign the water is low in oxygen, although many things can cause heavy breeding...

Provided the surface has some rippling/splashing from the filter(s) you should be fine without the airstone...
