I have the same question. I have heard tetra whisper is decent but don't really know.

If I was buying an air pump, I would look at the output.
Compare pumps with say, litres per hour, gallons per hour. I have not bought one in a long time, but manufacturers should rate their pumps.
If they didn't advertise the rating, I would send them a letter questioning same.
Not all tanks are created equal. normal depth and deep ones.
The deeper tanks require more air to deliver to the bottom. (PSI) more pressure
If you want to power 5 tanks, get one with the largest volume output. g/hr or l/hr
