    Is it possible to use one air pump to oxygenate two tanks?
    Are there some kind of connectors that could be used to split one air tubing into two to go into separate tanks?
    Thank you.

    You can buy a little T connector to split the tube. or use a air flow control valve.

    Some air pumps have 2 outlets, I'd suggest getting one of those rather than using t connections

    I use an air pump from Tetra. And they usually have two holes for you to plug in two airline tubes in.

    Why? Would it not be powerful enough?
    Thank you

    Yes, now that I know more about the hobby, I wish I bought the one with two holes :) as there are constant growing needs :)

    It depends what the output of your air pump is. Although you don't need much to run an airstone. Try the t connector, cheaper than buying a new pump
