I have a 25 litre 12" cube with some young White Clouds, its a minimal tank
with no plants only stones.



I'd like to put an air wall at the back for the fish to play in, and need a new air pump. How big an air pump should I get for a 12" wall? I've heard that the ends of walls aren't very good so would like the proper size pump to work them.

Hope someone can advise me, thanks

Most companies seem to make their smallest air pumps recommended for either <38L or <60L - I can't imagine you'd have a problem running either for your bubble wall...depends how 'vigorous' you want it to be. If you get one which is a little too powerful you can always turn it down (with a tap on the airline, as they don't usually have variable flow rate on small air pumps). Anything around the 50lph mark would do the job I'd say.
