I know this is a little of topic put is the 20 to 60 gallon air pump that you git at wallmart to strong for a 1o gallon tank
I'm about to give up on air pumps..just bought a jw fusion 400 air pump which was suppose to be quiet but it's just another annoying loud pump. Are the Tetra whisper 40's quiet? Or another brand is quieter like million air perhaps?
It's designed for a 10G tank, it had BETTER be quiet... There's not much water to move.Very first air pump I've had and just put it in the tank three days ago. Absolutely no noise except the sound of the aquarium itself and of the bubbles hitting the surface lightly.
Nocturna honey, that's all I've been preaching about...pawfly air pumps..Mine's in a 16g. And this is just an example of the brand (Pawfly). They have bigger air pumps. I'm assuming if the quality of mine is this good then their others would be good too.
