"Very powerful."

I put a nice little fan next to mine and it now runs much cooler! The new unit works fine as a secondary air pump in a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium. Kudo to them for backing up their product. One of the best pump design I've own. I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit.

biOrb 46037 Final Thoughts

"Hygger never disappoints!"

The rubber feet dampen most anything that the sealed pump doesn't cover. The pressure isn't as great as I hoped. The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue! It could easily run a small fish room. I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. Works well in my 75 gal tank running a 36 inch bubble stick! I have this in our small aquarium with an LED bubble stone.

"Odd, but great."

My first one may have been a lemon. And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only. I have this in our small aquarium with an LED bubble stone. Its not going to vibrant on anything! I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long. Kudo to them for backing up their product. Make sure the hose is connected well.

"Great product."

I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected. I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. The first lasted about two years when one side decided to put out less air. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700. I cleaned the sponge and hooked it all back up, hardly any air was coming out. Works well in my 75 gal tank running a 36 inch bubble stick!

"Very happy with it."

It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! One of the best pump design I've own. Overall seems like a good air pump. I had to use valves to reduce the output. The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. The pump works very well in my 75G tank.

"This is both."

This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! I have it running on 55g with 2 sponge filters for my Axolotl tank. After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail. I put a wire tie Tightly over the tube and barbs and it's perfect. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. We can hear the tank bubbles, but nothing noisy from the pumps at all. I'm using it for small start-up hydroponic system.

"It is good and quiet."

Kudo to them for backing up their product. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. Pay a bit more but the quality is worth it. Adjustable air flow settings which is new to me on a air pump but very convenient. And check the filter often, at least every two- 3 weeks. This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful.

"This is the 40."

Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump. This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly. Almost all people will be highly satisfied with this unit. One of the best pump design I've own. My 20H tank is in my office, 3 feet away from my desk. Otherwise, I would buy another one.

"With the windows closed."

It still works internally, but no air. And there are fixes around all of it. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. The company made it right and took care of me. The motor was working but air was not moving. So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank. The pump works well when there is no defects.

"Works great and is quiet."

Make sure the hose is connected well. Considering the warranty and performance, I upgraded my rating by 2 stars. Larger tank owners won't have my issues. They generate a TON of air and last a long long time. Adjustable air flow settings which is new to me on a air pump but very convenient. I knew I had to try something else. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t!

"As far as noise."

Don't be startled if you test it without oxygen tubes, It is Very noisy! I have it running on 55g with 2 sponge filters for my Axolotl tank. I'm using it for small start-up hydroponic system. I hung it so its not touching anything. And one to the additional accessories for extra oxygen output only. I started to write a poor review of the pump.

"It pumps PLENTY of air!"

I couldn't even think to do my work. Push once for On and hold down for 5 seconds for off. And there are fixes around all of it. For the money, this air pump cannot be beat. After 3 weeks, I received a new one in the mail. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you.

"Just kept vibrating."

This one is far better than I anticipated! It makes the perfect size bubbles and the fish love it. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you. The pump works very well in my 75G tank. I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts! Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit.

I have it running on 55g with 2 sponge filters for my Axolotl tank. I had to use valves to reduce the output. I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though. I currently have it in a closet to grow aquatic plants and brine shrimp. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700. I know my title sounds overly dramatic, but I'm not kidding.

"Be advised!"

I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue! Provides proper wattage for all my accessories. Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts! I'm sure it would run a much larger bubble stick also. Overall seems like a good air pump.

"Works great."

I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you. The new unit works fine as a secondary air pump in a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. It just sounds like a large freezer. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days. It really is pretty quiet- once you unclog the air pathway. The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place.

"Hygger never disappoints!"

A white tail deer can hear a whisper 75 yards away! You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. I started to write a poor review of the pump. I didn't think I’d be impressed by an air pump but I’m pleasantly surprised. However Once you plug it to the Oxy tubes it is Silent! I currently have it in a closet to grow aquatic plants and brine shrimp.
