I have 2 powerheads now that I am using as my wave makers but they have gotten a little loud over time. I have a roommate who doesn’t mind the tank (Thank God) but has complained about how loud the powerheads are when they kick on. I am looking for suggestions of powerful wave maker (powerheads) that have enough power to create waves but have a reputation for being dead silent. I’m talking about the kind of silence that makes you ask yourself, “Did it come on?”. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. By the way my tank is 55 Gallons 4’ wide.
My vortech mp10 quiet drive is pretty silent unless you’re like right next to it. I’ve heard good things about the ai neros as well.
