Air Pump Hose Lengths

Manytanks

Hey all I'm setting up a breeding rack and will be running 9x sponge filters and 3x air stones off a large pump with a 14 outlet manifold on top of the rack. The question I have is do I need to have all the hoses the same length to get even air flow to all the filters or doesn't it matter?

As long as your manifold has adjustment valves for each line length will not mean anything. If it doesn't have valves it will follow the path of least resistance so you may be able to control flow with different lengths of hose but it would be a lot of trial and error.

Its just a standard plastic manifold without taps but found some valves that I'll put in the line just above the filters once I find where to buy some more.

I would check on amazon. Those would work fine to control each one.
