Looking For A Good Air Pump

I have 75 gal aquareum with 2 airstones under 2 inches of sand and my old air pump broke.
It broke where the tubing plugs into the pump on both outlets after a week of puttin airstones under sand.
Looking for a pump that can handle airstones under sand with outlet nipples that wont break off.

I've been using Whisper AP deep water air pumps for several years now, one of those would be fine for your needs. The AP 300 is a dual-outlet pump, I use the 300's with airline tees to run 4 sponge filters from each pump. If you have too much airflow you can use a tee and a separate valve to bleed off the extra pressure.

Ya, the 150 would work, you can usually find a good deal on either on e-bay.
