Ok, I bought a kit - and it came with a TopFin 60 HOB
filter. Got everything set up and am patiently beginning the cycling process.
One issue - it's noisy. The tank is in my home office where I routinely do conference calls and I'm concerned about the level of noise.
So now I'm pondering a canister filter to replace the HOB
Any pros/cons with making the switch? Seems like it'd be much quieter, and I could even put it inside one of the cabinets. Any risks (water drips, spills) I should be concerned about?
I'll probably pick up one from PetSmart or PetCo - recommendations? See that PetSmart carries a few - Filstar? Marineland? Eheim? Fluval? Not overly price sensitive if it's got features/better reviews.
