I think its for putting oxygen in the tank...

I have bars that release oxygen in the tank a couple Bubble rocks as well

Its a 55 Gallon Tank...

Brother has a Tetra Whisper and I think the thing is loud....!!!
but he says it was cheap


I don't mind spending any amount of money on a Pump...
the tank is in a bedroom I just want the best that is quiet and puts out a
good amount of air..

I looked up JW Pet, Tetra, Echo, Aqueon etc....



IM lost have no idea what to get...

JBL ProSilent range

Marketed as the quietest pumps available.

Where do you live? Not sure if they are available in the states

So you're just running some bubble rocks and airstones? I have an Azoo 5500 (I think that's the model), I got it at Dr Foster's and Smith. It wasn't even expensive and I think it's very quiet. I use it to run 2 10" air stones.
I have a Tetra Whisper 100 that cost quite a bit more and I think it's noisy.
