Need a new filter for my 30 gallon. Currently have a fluval 206 on it but it's so loud and it's in my room so can't sleep without turning the flow completely down because the impeller makes the loudest noise. I just finished cleaning it to check if snail shells or rocks were in it and nothing was in there. Now when I got it primed again it makes a high pitched squeal plus the impeller rattling when at full flow. This thing needs to go. Any suggestions?

How long should I run it on the tank to make sure my tank doesn't go through a cycle again

I would get the media from the Fluval and put it right next to the media in the Aquaclear. Leave it like this for 2-4 weeks for BB to seed in. Then, you can throw out the Fluval media

I just got 2 Aquaclear 30's for my 35G and I'm impressed. Easy to swap media over and not very loud at all IMO. Would definitely recommend Aquaclear HOB's.
