    Rena for small pump. Rena does't have as much juice compared to the tetra deep water. deep water, older series, was fairly loud.

    Hagen for fish room pump. The basement sounds like a humming bird with the fishroom pump I picked up recently. Don't bother me too much as I don't sleep in the basement and keep the door close. But can get annoying after a while.

    Thumbs up Top Fin 8000 not a bad pump to use.

    On the advise of a member I just bought a Top Fin 8000 to run all the tanks in my fish room I ganged the 4 outlets on the pump into a 1/2" pex header and have multi outlets for lots of uses as required , it's fairly quiet but you still have a small humming bird in the background.

    If you are using a small pump, try uspending in your cabinet on a couple of elastic bands to isolate the vibration.

    We use the fusion pumps, they are virtually silent. the movement of the water makes more noise than the pump.

    I have a whisper pump too, if it wasn't for the bubbles in the tank I wouldn't know it was there.

    thanks everyone who posted their feedback. I went ahead and picked up a fusion 200. i tested both the fusion and rena at JLs. the Rena is ultra quiet; however, it was 3x as much as the fusion. the fusion is very quiet but the rena was noticeably quieter. I had to ask the fellow at JLs "is the pump even on?" as they both were very quiet. now i can get some better sleep

    Maybe i'm just sensitive, I have a whisper 20 and a fusion 200, they are both loud as heck. The noise is alright if I do not attach any airline tubing, but once I do, the noise is insane. It's difficult to concentrate in the same room with the air pumps.
