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.
