Best Air Pump for 36 Gallon Bow Front

So my 36 gallon bow front is up and running. I want to use a bubble wand for the back, and was wondering what the best air pump would be? The tank is in the living room, so I am looking for quality and silence. Any suggestions? Will be a community tank, semi-planted.

I would have to say the Tetra Whispers are pretty quiet.

Here it is!



The Tetra Whisper is pretty quiet, but does anyone have any ideas/experiences eliminating the humming/making it even quieter?

What model did you get ? 30, 40, 60 ?

Sometimes moving or rotating mine makes the humming stop. I've heard of people sitting them on socks to absorb the noise, but there is the matter of it overheating.

We got the one rated for 30-60 gallons. Its pretty quiet, but I might try draping it in bubble wrap to make it even quieter.
