air pump

im running on 5 Aqua Culture air pump right now and its eating up all my plugs and eating up space and electric. i wanna get rip of the 5 air pump i have and go with something bigger maybe a air supply motor.

i want something that can handle up to 20 sponge filter, 4 BBS hatcher.

i have try adding a T shape to one outleg but the outcome came to.

1. one sponge filter will work, one wont or one will work only with half the power and the other one wont. or another is both will work but using less less air which isnt doing much at all.

i was looking at this 20 WATT AIR PUMP! - Hydroponics, Pond Aeration aerator - eBay (item 250703363905 end time Oct-02-10 18:41:37 PDT)

its only come with 6 outleg but hoply it can handle more than 6.

That is just a surface skimmer you hook up to a filter intake.

I would recommend checking out Pondmaster air pumps. They are made for ponds and fish rooms, are quiet, high quality, and reasonably priced.
