Mutli tank air pump?


I am looking to set up a ten - 10 gallon tank shelf, and would like to use a single air pump. I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations on air pumps, or blowers that would work in my situation.

Thank you ahead of time for your replies.

Did you say a 10, 10 gallon tank shelf? As is 10 tanks of 10 gallons each on one shelf? What is your occupation friend? 'Cause that's what I need!!!

Better make sure that shelf is steady and sturdy: that's a thousand pounds plus!

Don't know anything about air pumps though. I've seen tubing "joints" in the stores though so I would try getting a big pump... like say big enough for 100 gallons and then split it between the tanks? I dunno... just throwing ideas out there really... don't take my word for it.

On a shelf!? Like with metal support underneath right?

I'm guessing you wanna use the air pumps for filters then..Whisperer and Tetra have air pumps with multiple hook ups, but I honestly can not recall ever seeing ONE with 10, so you may have to get 2-3 there. Have you checked on the common tank supply websites what you may find there? They may be other brand that do multi hook up's as well, I just do not know them sorry.

there are some very powerfull pumps, they are over $100 dollars though, they will definatly be enough to pump the whole tank.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
