Need 'silent' filter reccommendations! Help

  1. emmiesaurus Initiate Member

    I'm setting up a 6g divided betta tank, and I need a very quiet filter as it'll be in my college dorm room and I don't want it to keep me awake - and it needs to be quiet enough that the people in the rooms next to me can't hear it. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Most internals are almost silent, All Pond Solutions do some small internals suitable for a 5 gallon, you'll find them on their website or ebay

    I use an internal fluval filter and it is absolutely quiet. Keep it clean and most often it will be silent. Most of the sound from my HOB filters comes when the water level is lower due to evaporation, so that is an option you could consider. Plus a Sponge filter can be quiet if the air pump used is good quality. To keep one air pump I have quiet, I've set it on an old wash cloth because I found it rattled a bit on the desk.
