Whats the Best Air pump -PLEASE HELP

I'm looking for help with an air pump for a 75gallon tank. What's the best with the most output? I've tried the Tetratec AP200 Dual Outlet Air Pump with Flow Controls with little satisfaction.

I want to maximize the oxygen in the tank and I am wondering what type of air bubbler I should use to meet my expectations.

Thank you for any advice and specifics on products.

I have 2 rena air pumps. they are probably the quietest pumps available. I used to use tetratec as well... soo loud. maybe rena is a good choice for you. you probably would want to go with the 300 or 400.

I agree with the suggestion to use Rena air pumps. I use nothing but them (one 300 and four 200 models) on my tanks and they are quiet and powerful. They are also easy to maintain (I get the parts from www.thatpetplace.com). I would recommend the Rena Air 300 at a minimum for a 75 gallon tank although it depends on how many devices are going to be attached to it. I suggest using the Micro-Bubbler as your air stone.
