Most people place their air pump under the tank and in the storage cabinet, if you have one. Here are pics showing how my Whisper Air Pump is set up to deliver air to my biological filter in my 10 gallon tank:

The Air Pumped by the pump is first passes through a check valve, to prevent backflow, then passes into a gang valve, which divides the airfolw evenly between the two lift tubes for the biological filter.
