    Hello I hope someone can help me with this. I want to run 6 sponge filters in 18 x 12 x 12 in breeding tanks. Does anyone have any idea what volume of air I will require to drive these sponge filters.

    I’ve run 15 Hagen Elite Double Sponge Filters with a little Dolphin 4 Star.  The Dolpin pump is rated at 4.4 litre per minute output.  The Hagen sponge filters DO NOT have air stones so they require much less air pressure to operate.

    Thanks, I was surprised by your pump output driving so many filters, I had in my mind i would be needing a much higher rating of l/hour. Great news will also keep the cost down.
