BEST pump for multiple sponge filters ?!

Recommended Posts

check out Alita Industries 15 LPM

I have it, very quiet. I run about 10 tanks with sponge filters on it. 

I also have an Alita 40 LPM, it's much louder.

If you don't see yourself going farther than 8 outlets, then Hygger Pumps have a good rep.  (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B075653ZL2/?coliid=IQTA2NMAUSKVG&colid=21UX9TH331DWV&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it)  Hooking it up to a manifold you should be good to go.

That being said, Linear Piston Pumps are fantastic for running several outputs.  I highly recommend Jehmco/Medo pumps.  While they may cost a bit, the technology is superior to Linear Diaphragm or Diaphragm Pumps overall & they require little to no maintenance to run 8-10 years.  The LPH26 would do just fine for double your current requirements, but for the price you might consider the LPH45.  You would want to bleed off the excess air.

So what about my chemical filtration  guys ? How would I incorporate this with sponge filters.. I would love to use bio rings and carbon . Is it necessary for a good shrimp tank?

No real need in a shrimp tank, but if you need it for a period of time you could always add a bag of purigen hanging in the output of the sponge filter.  Or you could look at utilizing Quanvee Sponge Filters.
