View Full Version : and the best air pump is??

05-02-2003, 12:23 PM
I have three fry tanks that I run sponges in. 2 10gs and one 20g. 40 gal maximum.

I was wondering what the quietest pump is. The PP I am using is a about to die and is very loud.

Are all pumps basically the same at the same levels? Or should I get a Hagen or Rena?

Thanks for the advice in advance.

I use big piston pumps mainly, but as far as diaphragm pumps go, I've had good success with the bigger Tetra Deep Water pumps (the ones with two outlets). One of those should be able to power all of your sponges. They're very quiet too (until the diaphragm starts to wear out; then you can replace it).
