    Air pump question

    What would be a good not to expensive air pump to buy. I would like to run somewhere around 8-10 10G's with sponge filters. I would like a pump that can supply air to all the tanks. Thanks

    My wife got me one from petco for like $30ish. It has four outlet that can run 3 Airstones each. It also has an adjustable dial on it. It is white and roundish. Air pumps don't take alot of electricty, just a little motor in them, so get more than you would need and just turn the dial down or vent of a little air if you need to.

    You probably will need a 4 outlet pump with a dial would be your best bet considering each outlet runs 3 or so airstones.

    I am Super, I have a 10 gallon fish tank with some Guppies, a planted aquarium LED light, a 10 gallon fish tank filter and an aquarium heater. I stock the tank with only shrimps and snails.
