O2 added to water?

Does anyone have any experience with adding oxygen to fish tanks...I have a relatively complex system that receives co2 ( for my five most heavily planted tanks ), and have an oxygen concentrator ( a device which extracts pure oxygen from air ) that is sitting unused. The concentrator can deliver in excess of two liters of constant oxygen under pressure which could be easily diffused with an airstone...I am interested if anyone is aware of potential benefits/problems. Thanks for your input...Bob Gilbertson. P.S. I do not have any ammonia/nitrate/nitrite problems as I have constant water changing of 10% daily by volume (120 gpd r/o and 60 gpd filtered tap)
