Default Air pump recommendation

I am looking for a quiet air pump that can be used for up to eight tanks around 20G.
Any recommendations?


Thanks

I hear Rena air pumps are suppose to be the quietest. I imagine get the biggest one available for 8 tanks.

Tetratec Deep Water DW96 or DW96-2 ---> http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...fm?pcatid=3676

Luft Pump ---> http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...fm?pcatid=7377

The Luft pump is a bit less powerful, but it's adjustable.

I use this one too and love it. I'm running 8 tanks on it now and it could handle more if I wanted it to. I'm 8 months into use and it's still pretty quiet.
