Air pump

Can anyone recommend a "solid" air pump? The Whisper pumps keep crapping out after a few months. I just bought a Fluval Air Pump Q2 but I'm saving it for my 90 gal tank.

I haven't used an air pump in years. Your filter should be enough for good gas exchange. Unless you are using a sponge filter.

Hello whe...

The best I've used are Active Aqua and imagitarium. I run a lot of sponge filters and these air pumps are excellent.
