I have a sponge filter for the new 39L (10 gallon). And it's.. REALLY noisy.
I have a pretty powerful external pump with its tubing attached directly to the filter. The flow seems massive
, and that burbling sound the filter makes is very noisy. I'm wondering if I'm just not doing it right. I've never used this kind of filter before..
I have got a little valve thing to stick on the tubing, with a flow adjust knob but I'm kind of worried about whether having that too low will mess my pump up (pump is suitable for up to 100L/50G).
Is there any way to baffle/cut the flow down/shut it the hell up?
I know -nothing- about filters, pumps, tubing, valves etc, so any advice would be welcome. My experience with filters is trickle/sump things with a small submersible pump in the IQ tanks.
