    Hi first time on here and first time at keeping fish. just a quick word about
    my air-pump (clear seal Air pump AC-9901) are they suppose to be this loud there is no way i could have it next to my tank. The neighbours would go mad. Is there a way of making it a bit more quite. Thanks:;dk

    Hello marklmr and Welcome to Fish Lore!

    If your air pump is that loud then it sounds like it may be defective. I'd return it and test the new one in the store before you bring it home.

    I agree w/ Ken. I keep my airpump behind my tank, leaning against the wall(there isn't enough room for it to sit on the stand) It was vibrating against the wall, and driving us nuts until we wrapped it in a washrag. Now it's fine. Hope you can get yours to be quiet.

    sometimes the screws holding the plastic shell together come a bit loose, and then they rattle together. tightining them usually helps mine
