I have two 2.5 gal tanks with small single sponge filters. I’m planning to get a gang valve with 2 outputs so I can adjust the flow if needed but not have it beat up the air pump.
My question is: what air pump do you recommend for me?
Also, some people do not recommend a gang valve and just using air control valves and/or bleed valves with air line connectors.
What do you recommend?
How should I set it up if I don’t go with a gang valve?

I have multiple tanks running of one air pump. My pump has two outlets but no control valves, just one knob to turn the power up and down. I use tee pieces to split the lines and little plastic control valves I bought in a ten pack on Amazon to adjust the flow to each airstone. I also have a one way check valve in each line which is essential if your pump is below the water level otherwise if the power goes of the water will syphon back into the pump
