in that case i'd go with the ehiem canister. it's a little much for a 30 IMO, but it'll keep things really quiet and really well filtered.

A quality canister can't be beat. I have an ehiem pro on my 55 and it's absolutely silent. I have aquaclear which are great as hob go but do have noise from water returning to the tank. The ehiem will make water noise aswell depending on where you aim the return.

Hi you may find the eheim ehfisubstrate rather expensive,but it last for a very long time. The manufacturer recommends replacing it every six months but i would ignore that as i have yet to replace mine and its over four years old now Yes try and look online to see if you can find what you are looking for
As for the noise you may need to twiddle things a little just to make it totally silent. Keep us posted please

A new thought, I've recently purchased a couple 10g marina kits that come with a slim hob filter. This is achieved by having the power head/pump on the intake tube in the tank. Absolutely silent filters, they don't require priming if power goes out. I've found them to be nice little filters do its something else to consider. Another idea is you can make your own canister filter with some basic plumbing supplies and a pump.

Th only thing with thoughs filters is when it gets touching the edge of the tank, something in the tank. The vibrations start going through everything and it is rather loud IMO. Also all the noise you don't hear, your fish do.
