Filtration

My 10 Gallon has been giving me issues lately. The AquaClear 30 (150gph) is quite noisy. I replaced it but the replacement was obnoxiously louder, so I'm back to the original.


I'm filter hunting!


I am looking for a good filter that does 125GPH+ and is SILENT! BUT, I need something that disturbs my water surface for aeration purposes, preferably alot.

Fluval U2&U3 are my first choices. Seem like great filters... But low surface agitation, I think.

Fluval 105&205- What do you think? I'm set on getting either one but once again, I'm worried about aeration. I'm not using an air pump; it defeats the purpose of silence.


So please help me! Anything under $150 is good.


Thanks in advance,

QP

125g/h seem like an awful lot of filtration for a 10g. Are you trying to make a wurl pool? Lol

If your not going to upgrade anytime soon, I'd say go with the 105 at minimum.
If you think you'll replace the 10 with a 20 - 30gal ... Then a 205.

So the 105 has good agitation?
