Someone please HELP ASAP on Mini Pump and Hatch n' Feeder

Hey
I just got the Hatch n Feeder baby brine shrimp thing. It feeds baby brine shrimp automatically, it's pretty nice. Only problem is I don't have an air pump. I do have an Elite Mini Filter that I am going to use for the fry and it has an airline tube hooked up to it. I also don't have any more plug sockets so I need the Hatch n Feeder and the Sponge Filter running off the same air pump. Is this possible? Can I just get a T-fitting and put it on the end of my Elite Mini Pro and attach it to my Hatch n Feeder? Or is the Elite Mini Air Pump sucking in air and it can't be done? I thought the Mini Filter was compeltely submerged, but they have it so the sponge filter is submerged and an airline tubing stays out of the water, which makes me think it's blowing oxygen out as like an exhaust type thing. Am I correct? Can I just get a T-fitting and put it on the end of the tubing where the air goes out?

Pictures help:

It's sucking in, not blowing out:

How To Use A Venturi In Your Fish Tank or Aquarium

So you'll need to get an air pump to drive your hatch n' feeder.
