Is there a gentle air pump for 10 gallon tank?
I bought the top fin air-1000 for my 10 gallon tank - seems to be the smallest they make, but it is way too powerful for my small tank, and is increasing the overall noise level of the tank - in essence it is making my nice relaxing tank, not relaxing.
Are there air-pumps that will more slowly or gently introduce bubbles into the tank?
here is the cheap fix. air control valves.
If you get a gang valve you can use the spar airline to raise brine shrimp or do what will happen anyway, get another tank.
Will these do?
Grreat Choice® Airline Connector Kit - Air Pumps & Accessories - Fish - PetSmart
These won't damage the pump by putting too much resistance on the motor?
at most the diaphrams life will be shortened.if you are worried about it,get a small gang valve instead and bleed off some of the pressure by leaving a channel open.this way you can dial in the flow you want.this will be safer for your pump.
Thanks for the advice. I got the airline control valve.
It works great!
Now I have a nice relaxing little bubble maker and the fish seem to have fun playing in it.
glad you are enjoying your tank.now it will actually be relaxing.
