DEAD silent return under 2.5 x 2 inches

Recommended Posts

I know that it has been asked before, but this rear chamber on my Biocube 8g is TINY so I am looking for real world experience and recommendations on a return pump that is under 2.5in long and 2in wide.  I would like it to push 250+ gph but the stock is only 106. I am using a W2 that I tested today during a leak check (man they are silent!) so i will have a PH for movement if low flow is the only way to keep quiet.

 

This tank is going to be on my work desk about 2 feet from me, I work with customers over the phone  a lot so background noise needs to be at minimum. 

 

Thanks in advance everyone

Eheim return pumps are exceptionally quiet. I bought one for my 20g IM peninsula. Can't hear anything over the protein skimmer.

Eheims are pretty small or the hydor pico.

Hydor pico. There are several versions. I have the 180 and 300 on a 7.5. You won't find a smaller, high flow pump. Not that 300 gph is high flow.... It ain't low flow in a tiny tank, though.
