Filter is keeping me up

The stream of water that pours down from my HOB filter is making a rather noisy splash to some of the water in the tank evaporating. I want to top off the tank in order to fix this problem, but I want to first know if this okay to do considering that I'm cycling my tank?

I think you'll be absolutly fine adding water to top it off. What size tank do you have and how far down do you keep the water level?

I fill my tank to right below the little lip, I have no sound at all.

Yep, just add some dechlorinated water and that should do it...

I keep a jug of water sitting just for this purpose. You'll constantly be topping your tank up with an HOB filter. I do mine every couple of days.

So, just to be sure. It's okay to top off my tank while I'm doing my first cycle?
