air pump question
    #2962686 - 08/04/04 02:01 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

i have an "Optima" air pump that is pre-set to run a 30 gallon tank.
I have 2 a4 gallon tanks that i would like to run off this pump. Is this pump going top be sufficient enough to clean the air out of both tanks? Also just a reminder, how long am i supposded to run this pump? all the time?

it's plenty. running contnualy would be the most convenient right? as long as you keep your rH high.

I put mine on timer because i was doing casings in my aquarium. If u run continually the humidity will be way to high. try on 1 hour off 1 hour. then check ur humidity. if u have to much adjust the time.

do you have your tubing submerged in water or some other similar setup? i just let mine blow directly into the chamber and it was perfect for my setup. i think the key here is to experiment and adjust like you said.

Oh yah i see what ur saying. Yah i have about an inch of water in the bottom of my tank. connected to the hose is a small bubble rock. it makes the humidity and causes gas exchange.
