I just setup an XP2 on my 29g and at first it was really noisy and sounded like a HOB does when its trying to take in more water...it would do that ever few minutes. I watched the tubing and found that large air bubbles were going into the filter. I moved the intake tubing around to kind of straighten it out and it still did that. But, after a couple days it is now quiet like my others.


Have you tried moving the tubing around a bit (obviously you can't move it much...)?

What all media do you have in it? Sometimes when I would put too much in my XP3s they would be noisy.


Sorry I can't be of more help.

I have a lot of bio balls, my blue foam from my Penguin filter cartridge, the bio wheel cloth thing, filter floss, the white foam pads and those big black foam pads. I have the stuff from my Penguin in for now so that I don't get rid of my bacteria.

It all started to get loud after I put the media in, so I don't know what I should take out...I have not moved around my tubes, I don't have much maneuvering space

Hmmm... take the bioballs out and see what happens, just as a test

I took out the bio balls. Still noisy, but less impeller noise than before. Maybe something is still vibrating? I am going to try and adjust a few things.
