Money no Object.. I want the quietest Filter possible .....

I have a Fluval 405 and it's incredibly quiet. Sometimes I have to check to make sure it's working... I love the fact it has 4 baskets. So much room for media.

I don't have one YET on my 55g but I plan a Fluval FX5/6 soon. Some might say overkill but it'll give you great filtration and it future proofs future tank upgrades. You can never have enough filtration.....
