I have a fluval C2 HOB
filter in my room on a ten gallon and lately it has been driving me crazy. It is constantly making crackling or popping noises as well as gurgling. It even sometimes makes a crunching noise which I am sure is not good, I am at the point where I M willing to buy a replacement if it means I can sleep. Does anyone know a HOB
filter suitable for a ten gallon that is VERY quiet and still filters well?
Or does anyone know how to fix my problem? I have tried replacing the impeller but that only worked for a week at most. The lid is rubber-banded down and I have tried lubing it with Vaseline when it got bad.
Or if there is another kind of filter other than HOB
that would work just as we'll but be quieter I would be willing to try that. I do have a beta in the tank so it can't output too much current or not be able to have a baffle put on it.
Thank you in advance for your advice. Please help as soon as possible. This filter is keeping me awake at night and It has gotten to the point where some nights I have to turn it off and make do with an airstone until the morning.
