I don't have links, but you can get a single outlet air pump and attach a 4 way gang valve to it to get the required number of outlets. Of course, the air pump will need to be able to generate enough to output to power whatever devices you are using.
Do you have to use an air pump? Can you instead use an internal or hang on back style filter? Not sure what size of tank this is for but making this suggestion based on noise.
I shop on Amazon for a lot of my aquarium needs.
Oh, about posting in the classified sections, I believe you need a minimum of 15 posts. You are a couple shy of that at the moment.

Fluval makes cylindrical internal filter sponge replacements that fit nicely over the Fluval/AquaClear HOB filter intakes. That is what I am using on my shrimp tank (AC50 filter in a 20g long). It's quiet and the shrimp are safe.

I have never seen a quiet air pump I always stuffed them between 2 pillows .

you can use a sponge filter on one of these and get a air flow along with a current the shrimp would love.

You can buy this sort of thing on aliexpress and have it all shipped to your house. 5m (15' ?) Of air hose is about $1, the t-pieces to make the extra outlets are 10/$1, and the actual pumps are about $5.

I use an Alita AL-6A with 5 air lines to three different tanks. It's rated at 27dB - one of the quietest I've ever heard.
