I just setup my 75 gal
tank, refuge and everything. Is in the living room, and the protein skimmer is so loud! Sounds like the dish washer running!
My girl friend and I where very unhappy about the sounds, and decided if wecould not find a solution, the tank had to go!
I have looked into making baffles, insulating the skimmer, and changing its position. The only thing I can think to do is add a timer to the pump, and run it from 12am to 12pm. Also lowering the bucket to help get more in this time.
I understand this may shorten the pump life, and won't keep the tank as clean 24/7. This still seems better then not getting to enjoy this salt watter reef tank
Not sure what skimmer it is, can't see behind it. with it running this sec, I'm not moving it. I posted pics a few days ago
