Hi all ,
Looking for advice on what make /model of pump that can run 8-12 sponge filters or more at once. Hoping to pick one up in the next month or so. It also must be fairly quite. Cheers

Have a look at the superfish koi pond air pump range.
Still havent got around to do my shrimp room yet but they came recommended to me when i was doing my research for one.
They are fairly cheap as well so was considering getting 2 in case one fails.

Thanks Anthony. Had a look at them there and they look decent. I was also advised to have a look at the Blagdon koi air 65 which looks a very decent pump but its fairly pricey

Im running a blagdon koi 50 with 6 2inch air balls and a 3ft air curtain. Its more than capable and ive not touched it in over 2 years now. You get what you pay for.

Thanks paulv. They seem to be the make that's getting the best reviews. I'm waiting on a guy on eBay to reply tomorrow with the postage costs to send one from the UK so ill see how that works out. How loud is it as in ill have mine in the attic ?

Hi eric, im only getting back to you now. If you place the pump on a piece of rubber back carpet you will not hear a thing. Its great you are keeping it above the tank as there is no chace of water ever getting back to the pump.

Picked up the Blagdon air 65 the other day. 150 euro posted from the UK. Way cheaper than some of the places i priced here in Ireland plus i didn't have to drive to collect it. At least now i can run the tanks i have and have plenty left for the likes of hatching brine shrimp and the like. Very happy so far. Plus the more lines you run from it the quieter it gets
