I want to go to just 1 pump in my kitchen corner from the 3 I have.

I only need to run
1 large airstone in 55gal
1large sponge filter in 20gal
3 small sponge filters.

I was looking at this on Amazon. Is this good or overkill?

Thoughts?

That would be overkill, but more to the point it’s the old style that are louder than need be.
60 litres per minute will run around 28 outlets?
This Hailea model comes in 3 size.

that's the ones we used like a decade ago in hydroponics Lol.

So you think like 30L per min with what I have? Or less?

Probably 30 is enough for today but perhaps you will get more tanks soon?
No more tanks will fit in that corner so that will be it there. So the one 30l pump should last me. And go from 3 cords to 1.

My room is now getting the new tank today.

I have mounted my pumps out in the garage with 30 meters of 20 mm hose running in the ceiling. Even this pump was load when running 24/7 in the house

With racks you could stack a row of tanks on top?

I know I probably will put more on top in long run. Haha. But today I have rack in room with 29gal shrimp tank and I will be setting up 10 gal cull tank.

I think I'm going with this guy, lines only have to run a few feet and 55gal is deepest tank. I have lots of work before this corner gets more tanks.
