    Here is a pro-am model for $39.93

    The older and apparently discontinued Coralife Super Luft 35 used to be about $45. The current model I'd suggest for you is this one;

    This one will do a couple of racks of the size you're planning.

    If there is a local hydroponics store, they may have one of the above at similar pricing.

    Thanks dbosman. Very informative post. Actually I was checking out those coralife pumps and they are available locally.

    I'd suggest one of the diaphragm air pumps from jehmco. I currently have the DAPMH-20($90) running approximately 15 sponge filters of various sizes, with some long runs(20'+) of tubing as well. It will probably handle a few more sponges if I needed it to, and it's also super quiet. I also got the AV1-B valves and built a manifold out of 3/4 PVC pipe.
    11 tanks, 5.5g up to 125g(2). Mbuna, Haps, Peacocks, Tangs, wild caught to tank raised!
