With the tank running for the first time last night, even with all the vibrating noise, it still wasn't too loud.

No more sloshing or rising and falling of water since that initial adjustment.

SharkMan, I'm guessing with the dual overflows, if you are going with the megaflow sump you'd get the model 4? just curious. Mine is the model 3 as I only have one overflow.

Make sure you have a ball valve on your return line and you'll be set.

I have an Oceanic 75g RR tank, MegaFlow sump, ASM G2 Skimmer, stand, canopy, and 60lbs of base rock.

Someday I'll add fishies.

I can't comment much as my tank size is 29G, but the Fluval canister filters are really quiet.

I wrapped mine up in memory foam and put tape over it so the vibrations from it's body get absorbed. Also, squeezed the output hoses between two blocks of memory foam to further stop vibrations, and routed them so they don't touch the cabinet.. or it will act like a big drum being vibrated by the hoses.

All in all, I have ZERO noise from 2-3 meters away. My Dolphin 560 pump is coming tomorrow.. it's external/internal, so I will immerse it in a small tank with rubber/foam on the bottom just to block it's noise/keep cool, and hook it up to some custom piping.. I'm expecting zero noise out of that one too, with plenty of water movement.

That's so far my solution to a bedroom tank

It also makes things nicer as I dont have any powerheads inside the tank taking up room, and maybe the fish will appreciate the complete silence.
