Dead-silent tank

Hi, i have 5 gallon tank right now, too small for my fish(2 Mollies). So I want to upgrade to atleast a 30 gallon tank. But i'm scared of the noise it might make. The tank is in my bedroom and i can't get into sleep when there is noise or water splashing. Any suggestions would be great !!

Thnx

Ian

A canister filter is your best bet for quietness. A fluval 206 or 306 would work great for that.

I'm from belgium so its easier to get my hands on an ehiem canister, but i can get a fluval 205 aswell. Any recommendations? I guess the 205 isnt that good?

An Aquaclear filter is very quiet.

I agree with the Aquaclear, it is my favorite filter I have 3 in my house. It's also easy to trouble shoot with....I have an emperor 400 as well but I don't like the water flow from it, constant trickle sound and then when trouble shooting with it...omg how many parts does a filter need?

I have an aquaclear on the tank in my bedroom. It is totally quiet. I keep the water level high, so there is no splashing. The loudest thing on this tank is the air pump.

In the living room I have a fluval 305 on a 37 gallon tank. Again, totally quiet. I love the filtration from the 305 better than the AC, but that is a matter of preference.

Thnx everyone for the suggestions !
The Aquaclear filter sounds great but i can't get it where i live. Best brand i can get is Eheim. Any suggestions on that brand? Maybe a Eheim classic?

Yet again thank you !
