I think they are ALL to loud but hey, thats just me.
I put a nice thick piece of carpet padding under mine to stop it from vibrating on the stand and that worked well.

How about not having one?

Not sure how big your tank is, but I don't have an air pump for my 10 gallon. I just use the Aqua clear mini power filter which produces enough turbulence on the surface for O2. I've had fish in there for about 5 days now, and they don't look starved for air or anything. Acutally, most of them just hang out at the bottom.


Peace is in the art of creation.

Here are pictures of my Tetratec pump, gang valve, and check valve, and how I used the fruit cup to suspend the check valve. In my case, if I keep the length of airline from the pump thru the check valve, to the gang valve, off the counter, then I have no buzz. The pictures are in my gallery.

TankGirl said it all. a mouse pad is best, it will keep it in place while reducing vibration through it
