Yeah, so I've got a bubble rock for Cass, but every pump I've tried in her 5g tank, and every one I've found online, is too powerful and pushes her around. Even the little Fluval 5-10 gallon air pumps are advertised as "QUIET AND POWERFUL" and don't have variable flow speed. I'm trying to find a weak air pump to provide a small amount of bubbles with very little flow. Is that unrealistic? Does an air pump like that not exist? Because an hour of research seems to tell me it's an unreasonable request. xD

Thanks for any help.

They are T valves I've had to use more than one.

I am using a Tetra Whisper pump to run two and three tanks. I have also found Top fin ones at Petsmart to be less powerful. I use extra air line and put it on the floor for it to be quieter. I am wondering if are hooking this pump to a sponge filter. You don't need the pump otherwise. If you are are using a sponge filter I might be willing to film my setup.
