Air Pump For Shrimp Tanks

638 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ChadO
I'm looking for a good air pump to run 10-15 sponge filters and running into mixed reviews on everything I look at.

I had been told to try Ecoplus Commercial airpump because its cheap and works great, but later found out they tend to heat up and can even raise temps in a tank.

Then the rest of the pump I was told are massive and are gear more for 40+ tanks.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You can call the folks at, and they will walk you through getting the right pump and size. I have the Diaphragm Air Pump (the 20 model) and it has worked great. Same number of tanks as you are saying. I also did a closed loop PVC setup, and that has worked really well.
