  1. Do you recommend any single outlet air pumps(powerful enough for 40g)? I would prefer single outlet because I’ve heard many stories of one turning off really quick.
  2. Aight thank you for the guidance. Your point was clear, but I guess you can never have enough coffee, I guess I’ll go with 2 mediums and the tetra whisper
  3. Aight I was considering this one already, I think ima go with it. However I’m a little confused by the part where you say 2 large sponges is too much then say you like to run 2 sponges. Do you mean 2 normal sized sponges? I think that would make more sense and look better
  4. yeah I was wondering why 10 pounds was such a big deal; i thought you meant half of 20. It’s no biggie though, it did give me an optimistic expectation of the price of air pumps for a second though lol So the pump itself doesn’t matter much? And this $25 will work in the 40g? The main thing I’m worried about is lack of circulation, but I also don’t want to deal with both a hob and a sponge, In that case I’d rather just get a hob. I did see a guy running 2 medium sized sponge filters for a 100 gallon so it’s probably a lot more forgiving then I think, especially since my tank is gonna be kinda understocked
  5. Huh? It says 20 bucks for me… I am overseas right now, however I have my location set to my American address. Maybe it has the prices for where I am right now, which has terrible Amazon shipping and takes double the cost and months to ship.
  6. There’s 2 co op ones? I only see one. Also, funds aren’t really a problem for me and I don’t like them limiting my aquariums, but I also won’t spend like 200 bucks on a super controllable pump if you get what I mean. Is a nano pump really enough for a 40gb? Hmmm hobs with filter floss also have to be cleaned very often, more trouble than they’re worth imo, I don’t want super polished water just clean water. I don’t know, I guess I’ll try the aquarium co op one.
  7. Do you think this one looks good?https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B08HMZSH9J/ref=sspa_mw_detail_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&sp_csd=d2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9waG9uZV9kZXRhaWwp13NParams it is dual outlet, but it’s also pretty powerful and has good reviews. The other one I saw was the tetra whisper but many people had problems with the noise on that one.
  8. Thank you so much, helps a lot. I’m running a low tech tank so I do want a really high amount of fine bubbles. So I should get 2 large sponge filters with a one output air pump for both with a gang valve? Also my tank isn’t very tall, 16 inches, so how would that play into effect? Do you have any specific recommendations for my situation? also I checked out the aquarium co op pump, it seems pretty weak for my setup, seems more like a backup for a nano tank, I definitely gotta keep it in mind for my upcoming 10g though
  9. Hey all, I plan on running a 40g breeder, under-mildly stocked. I’ve never ran sponge filters before but due to the fact I’m gonna have floating plants,shrimp, and fry Id like the gentler flow and extra biological filtration. I plan on buying the large aquarium co op one(with the airstone inside), but I’m a little confused. How powerful of an air pump should I get? It’s not like a HOB where the GPH is clearly there. I just have to guess? I mean I don’t doubt it’ll be strong enough but still. Some people also recommended 2 large sponge filters for a 40g, even though the filter itself is rated for 40g and up. What do you guys recommend? Ive got no idea as to what air pump to get, and whether I should get 1 or 2. Thank you for any help in advance.
