Air Pump

So I set up my bubble wall in my 10gallon aquarium tonight... looks OK .. however my pump i bought makes a lot of noise.... like a humming noise... any ideas on how to reduse this? or a good pump to buy instead?

also... what kind of goldfish do i have? lol :p

(hope to enjoy my video, aquarium is still ungoing a remodel... waiting for orders to come in)

Here's a video:

That is a fantail and it will need a larger tank soon. They need at least a 20 gallon to be alone, but really shouldn't be alone since they like to school.

thanks... but, i figured a 10gallon would be a good beginner tank... i do weekly water changes, and i think she's a very spoiled little fishy!

Will upgrade in the future

What is the nitrate concentration?
One of the problems though is that if you wait she will most likelky be stunted and never get to the size where you look at the tank and think 'wow, she needs a bigger tank'.
