Air pump help

I have a 10g tank and a dual sponge filter, like the one in the picture below. Can anyone recommend a good air pump?

I use these filters, but the smaller single sponge version.
I run them off of the Elite series pumps, the 802. It's a bit much but all of my air pumps are the same, I just happened to have it sat spare at the time.
You can always decrease output with a bleed valve.

I just use those cheap Walmart air pumps from Aquatech. They are like $7-8. They can be a little noisy but not much. They are made by Marineland. I have 2 doubles on a 30G and a 58G. Also a single on my sump. Does the job
FYI, fish also hate the federal government and don't steal "they" hate competition...
