Help! I set up my 16-gallon Biocube yesterday and something is wrong with the pump that came with it. I currently have live rock, sand, a fluval fan, and saltwater in the tank. In the back I have media, a heater, and the pump the tank came with. I was expecting a hum noise from the pump but it is very loud. To the point we have to raise our voices to talk if we’re in the same room as the tank. It sounds like a very loud buzzing noise coming from the pump. I’ve tried moving it in the chamber and playing with the suction cups on the bottom of it and the noise still persists. Any advice on what to do or other pumps to try?
I just set up my Fluval Evo 13.5 and been upgrading the equipments right away. I bought the Aqamai KPS pump. It’s a nice little pump that have many programing flexibility. However, every time the pump speed up or turn on an off for the wave mode, it produces a loud humming noise. Is everybody pump the same? From the review I’ve been reading on these pump it’s supposed to be near silent. Did I get a dud? Thanks for reading!
Hello, I've been a long time lurker and this is my first post. Let me explain my situation, I am a drummer (and a guitarist). I play the drums almost everyday, and let me say "a drumkit is a loud instrument". Once in a blue moon reaching around +100dB (around that of a firecracker), with an average volume of around +80dB (a very loud car or saw). I also am interested in getting a nano-reef aquarium. I would keep the tank in the same room as the drumkit. So, I was wondering if the loudness of my drumming may impact my fish in a negative way? Any info would be super helpful! Thanks, Luxembourg (I should also mention that the loudest part of the drums are the cymbals, which have high range frequencies. And I mute my bass drum, so that in comparison, it is not that loud. So I really only am worrying about the mid-high range frequencies.)
My Steve's LED cooling fan is too loud (50-60 dB with all other equipment turned off). Does anyone know of a "how to" for replacing the fan with a quieter PC fan? Also, my stock lighting did not require a fan for the temperature to stay under 80 degrees, does Steve's LED run hotter than the stock PC bulbs? If not, does anyone know how to just turn off the power to the cooling fans? I am about ready to go back to the stock lighting if I can't resolved this. Thanks!
