I have 1 pump in my tank suppling 3 air rocks. But I bought a proportioning manifold. It is a 3 way. I am able to tune the air bubbles independently. I think I have about 20 bucks, including the pump in my set up. I used black tubing from lowes - 20 feet was around 2 bucks. I had about 8 feet left over.

Depending on how your tanks are placed, you could do something similar. You could centrally mount your air pump, supply tubing to the manifolds (Daisy chained) and air supply tubing to the tanks, and tip-ties and/or tubing holders to organize it all. You can even use a permenant marker to label to which tank (1,2,3,etc)
