Okay. Have you also thought about the Tetra brands. I use an external tetra PF-10 on my 10 gallon. maybe there is a larger size

Could you please suggest a sponge filter which is truly quiet. The drone of the air pump drives me insane.

My Hagen Elite Mini is acceptably (as a benchmark) quiet.

The air pump? Well my air pump is very quit an you can barely hear it at all. Unless it is leaning up against something. I can't particularly remember the brand/model of both the pump, and the filter itself

I like the AquaClears...I have an AquaClear and a Penguin 200 on my goldfish tank, and I think the AquaClear is much quieter. Those two brands are the only two I have any experience with though...

Sponge filters. Absolutely no competition. You can run airline from another room or even stick the air pump hanging off a coat-hanger inside a box lined with styrofoam.

The fact that they're cheap, aerate AND produce a nice circulation without having a jetting return flow makes them almost as good as a NPT.

I've been told about Tetra filters, haven't heard anything about the Hagen.

I really want to avoid an air pump! I have NEVER heard a "quiet" air pump, so I'd rather not have one if I can avoid it.

Has anyone heard of the Aqueon Quiet Flow filter, or the Fluval Underwater Filter?

I honestly have not used or heard of both, but every single air pump I've had isn't loud unless it is vibrating against something. Such as leaning up against a wall while sitting on top of a table.

my friend loves the Aquion filters. Infact when I bought a tank kit it came with 1 and she begged me for it. I wasn't going to use it anyways b/c I love my tetra whisper internals!

Thanks! I'll have to keep the Aqueon in mind
