well a cubic foot is 28.3 liters so a 10 gallon (38 liter) terarium is about 1.5 cubic feet (actually less) so if you plan to run the air all the time youd want 3 air exchanges per hour during cropping (on average)
so a pump that delivers .075 CFM or 4.5 CFH would be perfect get too big and it could cause the casing or cropping suface to dry out too fast

btw 4.5 CFH = 127 L/H
