I just about had it with finding a good and quiet filter!!
I had temporarily stuck one of those Duetto filters in my 50 gallon tank. In the tank are 4 very large goldfish and a southern painted water turtle. Yes. These are all very dirty (well, they all poop allot
So, on friday I plumbed a Lifeguard Mechanical filter and the fluidized bed filter to my tank. Needless to say, the pump was not powerful enough to get the water flowing and the motor on the pump (once I got some water flowing through it) was just too loud. I like to hear a little trickle waterfall sound, not the wirring of a pump!!
So, I ripped the unit off and chucked it outside. I was a little mad....
Now, I don't know what to get? I have seen the magnum canister filters, but are these just as noisy? any other ideas on what to do?? HELP!!!
