Re: [eeegoh] Rearing Koi in Fiberglass tank
You still can get the Shiruba K10000 AC/DC air pump at Rainbow Aquarium. Cost around $60 - 80.
It's using only alkali D size batteries x 4 pcs.
I prefer alkali batteries as it can last >2yrs.
If not - nearby Petmart also selling AC/DC pumps, different model, comes with a dry rechargable battery. This type after 1.5yrs. of usage, if you test it to run = battery only can run 20mins & then die off.
That's why I prefer the alkali batteries.Most of the time, I replaced the alkali batteries not because no strength, but because after 2-3yrs. - $ is well spent lah! Still can give for your kid's portable Hifi usage.
No wastage. Wah lau! Fully Maximise....
Also scare the battery leak from inside & corrode the pump contact points.
If you are looking for rechargable dry battery - go to Sim Lim Tower (not Square) basement. There is a shop near the escalator - selling all kinds of batteries. You name it - he got it.
