I did end up setting my Whisper air pump on an oven mitt so that it wouldn't rumble on the desk. Maybe you can try setting it on something padded to help?

Mine came with a little plastic valve to adjust the airflow. I don't have it going full blast. And the air stone does help!

I have the Lee's discard a stone fine on mine. I have three going in my bedroom. With the air stones I find it to be soothing and puts me to sleep.

The air pump doesn't bother me really, but my dad wakes up at a drop of a dime and can hear it with my door shut D:

It's on like a stack f 20 towels and I even tried putting it in a huge slipper, but it didn't help. I picked up the valves though so I won't have t turn the filter off.

Kelsey, does your other tank have an established cycle? And are the fish in there healthy?

If so, and maybe you already know this, but I *think* you can drop the new filter in with the goldfish (not removing their established filter, just adding the new one) and it will build the good bacteria much faster.

Like I said, not 100% sure, but I thought I've read that of you want to quickly chucky a new hang-on-back filter you can add it on an established tank to speed the process.

I dunno, just something to think about &/or research.

Great idea actually, but my goldfish tank still has a long way to go before it's cycled. And I just lost one of the goldfish due to unknown causes (I assume from the stress of the ammonia spike I had, which caused him to lose his tail :< ). My other goldie is doing great, but I don't want to risk giving whatever the tank has/had to Paarth.

That's not a bad idea for the future though - once I know its healthy!
