I need an air pump recommendation.

I have 2 29g that I'm tearing down and turning into shrimp tanks. I have 4 Hydor V's that I'll be using with no air stones. The tanks are in a double stand and the air pump will be on a stand next to the tanks.
Anyone have a recommendation on what air pump to use? Noise isn't an issue.

The Interpet aquarium air pump is what I have, it is small and cheap and has different makes for different sizes of aquariums. Make sure that whatever you are going to run off it will work with the size of pump you buy. I know you said noise doesn't matter but its probably worth my saying that it is very quiet for an air pump. I bought this in replacement for a tetratec air pump, which did not have the power to run my air wall.

Believe it or not -- and especially since you mentioned noise ISN'T an issue -- I have been running, and now find myself recommending, the PetSmart "house brand" Top Fin AIR-8000 pump, which is the biggest one they offer with four outlets...
