Need help with CO2 regulator and Air pump

Hi all,
So I need help guys. I know they are separate items but figured I can make one post for both.

First off all, I have a 72 and a 20 gallon long tank, both with blasting sand and dirt; needless to say, they are planted. Both items that I need help with, I want to use for both tanks simultaneously.

First one is, air pumps. I want to get one strong air pump where I can split it in multiple ways. I have 3-4 sponge filters in both tanks and I want a pump strong enough to send air in all of them. If its not a realistic option, then I am ok with two pumps, but not more than that. How do you guys measure how strong do they need to be? What should be a good choice for my situation?

Second one, is a splitter for my AQUATEK CO2 Regulator. If I can split in two ways then I can inject CO2 in both my tanks. Is it possible? If it is, then what are my options?

Name and if possible internet links for both items please.
