    Default The quietest air pump ever.

    Hi guys,

    I have been looking for a quiet air pump for long long time, until I found this. I want to share my experience on this quietest air pump I have ever used. I have been using this air pump for 6 months. very very very quiet, I cannot even hear it unless I put my ear beside it. The only problem is it might be not powerful enough to run in big aquarium, but still I am very satisfied with it.

    This brand has 2 models, 1 output & 2 output versions. The 1 output version is on sale on amazon.ca now, and I bought another 3 this time.

    https://www.amazon.ca/COLLAR-aPUMP-S...ollar+air+pump

    Update: Amazon changed the on sale price, not very attractive now. was $13 when I first started this post.

    I had one of these (brand name) that I bought from JL Aquatics and I agree that's it's very small and super quiet. But don't expect a huge air output.

    Also . . . the listing shows a suction cup to mount the pump on the (out)side of the aquarium.

    Just wondering : Is the natural vibration along the glass surface any kind of problem/issue as far as the fish inside the tank are concerned?

    You can put the air pump anywhere you want, no need to suck it on the glass, but honestly, I cannot even feel the vibration.

    My review is the same as above ... extremely quiet. Bought mine from AngelFins ... they also have good reviews. However on larger tanks I didn't find it put out a great airflow so I replaced with Eheim 400 which I have had a way better flow from on tanks 60 G / 190 L and higher.
    Small fish room, 24 tanks - various sizes. Inside the house (1) 40 - Breeder + 2 show tank 1 Fluval Venezia 190 L & Fluval Venezia 350 L

    I keep most of my breeding groups in biotope tanks. I move pairs or breeding groups to special tanks to spawn and raise fry. I also take full advantage of Ziss & Marina water circulating breeder boxes. African Cichlids are what I breed mostly but have gotten more interested in catfish - corys & BN plecos in the past 12 months.

    We were carrying these at our store under a brand name until they were pulled from shelves due to not being CSA approved. They are great!
