Air Pump for a 55 gallon
I want to put 2 air stones in my 55 gallon tank to help with circulation, would it be best to get the Whisper 60 over the Whisper 40 and a gang valve? Has anyone had both, is there a noticeable difference in how loud they are?

Yes it does have 2 ports, thats why I bought that one! I knew it was over kill but was extatic when I found that they supplied the valves to regulate air flow. On full blast let me tell you I can make a title wave :) but yet I can turn it down low enough to make it perfect for my tank.
An airstone can improve circulation. The rising column of bubbles will create an upflow near the stone and create some water movement. That said the flow is very weak. If you really need to improve flow another filter is your best bet. When it comes to 55's I always recommend two filters, one each side. The tank is too long and narrow to build up flow in it any other way.
Watch my tank progress from Craigslist salvage to fishy habitat: Aaron's Tank
The only things that happen quickly in an aquarium are bad things.
