I had asked for filter advice about a week ago, and while most recommended AquaClear, they didn't have them at PetSmart, and I needed a somewhat quiet filter to get my cycle going. I purchased the Aqueon QuietFlow, as it had mostly good reviews and it was, after all, advertised as quiet. I installed the filter, and turns out, it is VERY LOUD. The motor continually whirs and makes a "grrrr" noise(it is not vibrations against the tank), and the water splashes super loudly. I really don't want to start my cycle all over again by purchasing a new filter, and so I need help quieting this filter down. Is there something I can do to quiet the motor? I was thinking about putting a "slide" on the opening of the filter(which releases the water into the tank) so the water just slides into the tank without a big splash, would this correct the loud water problem?
