NANFA-- air pump recommendations

I recently inheirited a bunch of fish tanks from an uncle who died.

Along with the larger tanks, I end up with a total of 10 ten gallon tanks, a
20 long, and 4 smaller tanks that are oddly shaped, so I don't know their
exact size.

That's 15 small tanks that I need filtration for. Since I cannot afford a ton
of small filters, I plan to go with sponge filters and an air pump.

I have been trying to decipher the competing claims of air pump makers and I
still can't figure out which air pump to buy. I would rather avoid a piston
pump due to the electricity usage.

Any ideas?
