Central air system #1
Hi all,

I’m in the process of setting up a fish room in my garage. I’d like to use a central air system to power sponge filter for most of the tanks.

I’m struggling with what size/LPH air pump I will need. Total number of tanks is unknown as yet but I’ve estimated about 1000-1500 litres across all tanks.

Any have experience of this situation that might be able to offer some guidance?

I don’t want to spend a fortune on the pump but also don’t want to end up buying a second pump as the first is too weak/strong for the system.
