    Curious what pumps folks are using and what you would recommend for a small number (<15) of sponge filtered tanks ranging from 5-29 gallons.

    Has anyone used this? -https://www.jehmco.com/html/lph26.html

    Thinking that would be overkill, but I really need to find one as quiet as possible.

    Thanks guys and gals.

    That will be quiet and you will have plenty of air. I love alita pumps.

    Go with the 45. I have had one for years and they are only 5 dollars more.

    Just be sure to get a bleeder valve if you get a pump that is bigger than you need. That way you won't burn out the pump. :)
