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.

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!!
