    Need Help Choosing Air Pump for 10 gallon Red Cherry Shrimp Tank

    I've read that RCS don't like a lot of current. Is using an air pump rated for aquariums up to 20 gallons too much for a 10 gallon shrimp tank? It would be connected to one of those dual sponge filters people use. Should I stick with an air pump rated for aquariums up to 10 gallons instead...

    Is 250watt Aqueon Pro Heater Too Much for 25 gallon planted aquarium?
