    My power head has started to make a buzzing noise and I was just curious if its ok to leave it running or if the noise will bother the tank mates? It's loud enough for me to hear so i just turned it off just in case till i can find out.

    What powerhead is it? Some make noise, some are silent.

    The noise won't bother any tank mates (fish can't hear). However, if the noise is the result of a vibration, and that vibration is going through the tank, that could bother fish.
