    Back on topic though... as I have almost no experience with different brands of air pumps, I'd just say grab a brand name in a nice box for a decent price. Get one that will suit your tank though, as some aren't powerful enough to aerate larger tanks.

    what type of filter do you have?

    if you need one im sure it wont make a difference to your fish if the pump is fancy or if it isnt. just get one made for your tanks size and put it on a sponge so it doesnt make noise.

    then get a large one to power both and a divider so you can separate the air to both of them

    I have a tetra 10-30 with those bubble bars that use 2 suction cups to stick to the back of the tank windows. I really love it. It doesn't take up much room like those stones. I actually cut mine with a hacksaw and replaced the caps to customize it to my tank. I think they are made of plastic. At first I bought a big one that covered the entire back of my tank window but found that it made my power filter gasp for water so had to cut it down.
