Hey i have a sponge filter in my 5.5 gallon shrimp tank but the air pump i am using right now is quite loud and it is in my room. I have another air pump that is quieter but i dont know if it is strong enough how can i tell?

Have you tried it out yet to see if it works?

Any air would cause it to circulate... the benefit of less air can mean that the water has more contact time with the sponge... aka the bacteria so it could improve biological (and to a degree) mechanical. The only thing i would test is that the water is still being circulated enough that it causes no hot spots from the heater...
