I am trying to increase the number of tanks in my fish room and I need advice on what to use as an air supply.  I have heard to use blowers and linear air pumps.  Which is better?  Is an air compressor a viable option.  Where are the best places to buy these products, etc.

how many tanks are you going to have?? What sizes?? All in the same room?? Need to know these things before purchasing your are supply. After you decide this then it is time to get your pump for the air supply. There are some very good inexpensive pumps out there that are capable of running 50 tanks or more with ease and also use low amounts of electricity so that makes it better that way too.

I have 2 Linear pumps now and they are better and more quite.
Jemco can figure your needs based on how many tanks you are looking to supply.
Use at lease 1.5" pvc for your loop. i made the smaller size mistake already and had to re do everything.
