A Quiet Air Pump?

Is there a brand that is really quiet? My new Whisper is driving me nuts!

Rena's are very quite IMO... Also IMO there's nothing whispering about the whisper. JMO.

Hmmmm. I think I will return it to Walmart and see if another one will be quieter.

Best of luck to you! Oh and remember, just because you have, say, a 30 gallon tank doesn't mean you need a pump rated for that size. I have one rated for 10 gallons and running a 24 inch bubble wall as well as a sponge filter in a 30 gallon and it handles that fine.

Oh. I didn't know that. I bought a huge one because it was for my new 46, my largest tank!

I even have a smaller one on hand!

Thank you!

No problem! Yeah a bigger one would definitely make more noise. Depending on what you're running off of it, a 10 ought to get you where you're going
