Noisy filter


I just bought a new Tetra ďwhisperĒ (ironic) filter and itís making quite a loud buzzing noise. Itís brand new and came in yesterday and Iím worried the noise is gonna bother my fish at night. Also itís a little too loud for my taste and can be hard to sleep with. Iím sure Iíd get used to it but is there any way to quiet it a little? I saw videos on making sure itís clean etc, and it is. Itís brand new, clean, etc, and I made sure to set it up properly and that all the parts are correct. My girlfriend has the same filter and has had it for about a month and hers seems to be silent.

Try adjusting it, moving it up or down on the tank lip. Sometimes this works. If not try putting something where it rests on the back of the tank or where it hangs on the back. I've found that when HOB's are sitting weird on the tank they'll vibrate loudly.
