    Good day all,

    I'm having difficulity in determining what size of air pump I need.

    I have a 150 gallon tank (48"L x 24"W x 30"H), and I plan on running 2 24" flexible bubble wands, and 1 or 2 small air stones.

    How big of an air pump do I need?

    Thanks for your help.

    Something around the 5.0w mark should be good for what you need. You can judge what you need by volume to. I think somewhere around 450lt/hr should be about right.

    That's a handy rule of thumb.
