I know this is gonna sound weird considering some of the questions here---but it's making me crazy! I have a 20 gal
tank just a few feet from my bed. I don't recall the air pump being this loud before though! I've had it for just over a year now, and recently switched from an air stone to an air tube (it's about 15 inches long) I noticed the noise before the switch and hoped the new tube would help. It hasn't. The noise is actually beginning to effect my sleep!
I've tried moving the tube to see if it's vibrating against the glass or stand, I've moved the pump itself to sit on a towel, I've even sat there holding the stupid thing to see if it's the stand it's sitting on---nope, just keeps up the racket.
Is it possible the pump is going bad? Could I unplug it during the night? Do I even need the air pump?? I have a Whisper 150 (I believe) filter, says it's good for up to a 30 gal
, and I can definitely see the water movement when it's on high...Please help me before I end up looking like
