I used to run about 8 sponges of something similar, depends on tank depth etc.

i have 3x 29 gal and 3x 20 long tanks. but i plan to run 4 more 29 gal tanks.

i talked to a friend of mine and he has a 28 liter per hour pump and he runs 25 sponges on his set up. i think i will be fine with my 65 liter per hour pump.
