Earplugs don't block so much noise that you couldn't hear your alarm if it's right next to your bed.

what type of filter do you have??? I have whispers on both my 10 and 20 gallons, and with the tank filled with water, the only noise i can hear at all is the light (only on my 20) which obviously is not a problem at night.

I had a different filter before, some blah brand that came with my 10 gal, and it was rather noisy, so I had to change it out.

One thing that has cosifderably helped my filter be quiet (dead quiet unless you are standing right next to it in which case you can hear a very slight humming from the motor) is to attach an aquarium sponge to the outake like this and bring up the water level as high as possible.

Did you have to do anything with your filters intake? Mine seems to "suck" my fish in that direction every time he gets close to it. Your tank looks really pretty btw.


I think your best option might be to baffle, or get a new filter if it is the filter itself making the noise, mine makes a noise, but unless I have my head real close to the tank I cannot hear it.

I want to get a new filter but I can't spend any more money =( I'm stuck with this one. The last time I tried to cycle, it was a total disaster because I couldn't keep the filter on all night. I'm about to give up on this...

OR - if you are willing to do the needed water changes you can go without a filter.

Okay, so I moved the tank out into the living room and bought 3 mini neon tetras for a fish-in cycle (I was skeptical at first since they are schooling fish but the owner of this fish store is very reliable, so I trusted her word) and hopefully that will be a good kick start...still nervous!

Well, there ya go then!

Just ask about how often you need to change the water and how many/how often 100% should be changed.
