    Okay, so today in the mail I got my filter. I ordered a Marineland Penguin 150 bio-wheel power filter from PetSmart.com.


    Here's my question, all those who are more experienced:

    Is it really supposed to be this quiet?! All I can hear is the water trickling through the filter. No loud annoying buzzing sound. Is this right? lol. I fear I may have done something backwards or wrong. :;smack

    Oh good!!! I was worried I had put it together wrong or something. I remember being in 5th grade and the class fish tank's filter was super noisy. Always loud and buzzing. lol.

    Phew. Thanks, fish lovers! :)

    I have 4 penguin bio wheel filters running in my bedroom, and I heve never heard the buzzing sound other people complain the biowheels make. The only sound I hear is the water fall sound that all my HOBs make.

    Mine is very quite and can barely be heard running. Only time it's noisy is when it's refilling after a water change, and then right back to being quite again.
