I'm curious Apocalypse_Gold why forget the powerheads? I'm kinda leaning in that direction, my air pumps are kinda of old and repairing them may be a nightmare.
I am running a 4 output whisper air pump, but i have had to t them together to make any real contribution to the aeration on the UGF
. i have another double air pump powering the two inner tubes and they are very weakly making a contribution. What size tanks are you using a ugf
