I have an Eheim Ecco Pro 35 and 80 and both are much more quiet than any of the Aquaclear filtters I've used (20, 50, 70). I have the 80 under the cabinet and the 35 in the open. I can hear the 35 but it is quieter than a Tetra Whisper 10, and both Eccos are quieter than the pair of AC 70s I have on a 75 gal. They cost a bit more but I will only use HOB filters for a pinch from now on. I just need to replace the two AC 70s I have.

I don't hear my canister at all..... you definitely don't get that waterfall sound effect when the tank level evaporates some like you do with HOB. Once you've had a canister, you can't go back.

My fish make more of a racket than my Fluval.

My fluval 305 is totally silent. The only thing I hear from the tank is the air pump humming and the timers click when they turn my lights on.

Sounds good to me! . Guess now I just need to pick one and learn how to set it up.

Many people like their Fluval x05 series filters, and Eheim owners like their filters. I don't know what size tank you'll be using it on but last week I was able to get an Eheim Ecco Pro 35 on clearance at Petsmart. They markdown was well worth it, so I recommend it if you've got a location nearby and it wouldn't be too small.

Ok, thanks! I'm looking at a 55 gallon right now. I'll check into those.

I'm considering the Fluval 306 for $110. Any opinions?

Sounds like a great idea I have one and I LOVE it, it really is silent and super easy maintenance
