    ok, so with my betta situation, the oily slick film, is causing me to have to get filters for my 5 gallons, So i am going the rigged cheap way, I have 2 very small sponge filters, VERY small.I want to run both sponge filters off of 1 air pump. my problem is finding a small air pump that has 2 valves. All the double valved pumps ar for 50 gallons and up, that would be an earth quake for the bettas. so i come to yall, wondering if any of yall have seen any small air pumps that are doubled valved.

    What about using a T fitting in the air line ?

    If it has enough power to run both filters, you could save yourself the cost of a new pump. For $1 or so it would cost you, I would try that first
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    Yea, I use the T, but for the opposite, I have a air pump with two valves that I am sending down 1 air line tube. Any LFS should have them for cheap. Just make sure you put a check valve on both lines, or at least on the 1 line before the pump

    How I use a double for one [Or if you ever need to use that 't' elsewhere], Is to just tie a knot in a short piece of airline and put it on one output, The full pressure comes out the other side.
