Thank y'all for the help!! I will run out tomorrow and see if I can find a new pump and some valves. I didn't realize it would be okay to run multiple filters off of a singe stem pump or how hard it would be to run two off of a dual stem pump. I just had that one laying around and thought it would work great LoL little did I know it does not. haha

Pumps come in differing sizes, my Elite 803 said it will run 4 airstones, but my smaller Elite ran 2 very well.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Soo I went out to buy a new air pump. The only pet store in my town is Petco. There is a Petsmart and some other small LFS about 40 miles away. I didn't have time to go that far today Soo the ONLY two choices I had was a tetra whisper or a petco brand. So I went with a Tetra Whisper 40. I also bought some more airlines and some valves (they were plastic which is all they had). I got everything home and hooked up and man that was a lot easier!! Both filters are up and running great now! Thanks for the tips y'all!!
