    The model 30 diaphragm air pump is currently on sale for 105$ on the website. So my question for you is:
    Is this a good deal?
    Would you use
    this model in a fish room setup?

    I was also asking because I found the same model on a local classified site, and was planning on getting it, should I get enough positive responses from the brain-trust. ;) :exact:

    Give me your opinions if you would! :D thanks!

    That's the best price I've seen on the Medo 45.

    What are the cons of a diaphragm pump? I wanted to know, because I've seen the suggestion to avoid them, but I was curious as to why.

    Plans are drawn up for the fish room! :) just need to decide on how to contain the breeder fish (that I still need to decide upon as well. But I'm going to take my time deciding all that while growing out this batch of fry.) there are so many DIY options, and pools and troughs and tubs and tanks, its almost overwhelming trying to decide which'll be most advantageous.

    They are louder, less efficient and have to be rebuilt ever couple years. The medo will go and go and you won't hear them over the bubbles.
