I recently purchased a 380 gal tank (8 long x 2 wide x 3 deep) and am in the process of setting it up. I would like to buy a single air pump to supply air to about 8 bubblers that are each a foot long (blue ones sold at Wal-Mart). What PSI and air volume should the air pump be?

Thank you,
Scott

Not a good idea in a saltwater tank. It causes all sorts of salt spray and salt creep issues that will get over anything above the tank. Air bubbles are better left in a protein skimmer in SW aquariums...

As to good O2 levels. As long as you have sufficient surface agitation of the water you will not have O2 issues.
