"Hygger never disappoints!"

Larger tank owners won't have my issues. I put a nice little fan next to mine and it now runs much cooler! For a solid working, quiet pump, this is about as good as it gets. Kudo to them for backing up their product. After nearly 5 months of use, it stop pumping air. It makes the perfect size bubbles and the fish love it. Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts!

Hpumps Final Thoughts

"I couldn't be happier!"

I have it running 8 different sponge filters at high rate! The pump works very well in my 75G tank. I set up 2 more and still all the control valve are not open 100%. I'm not going to knock the product for my own paranoia though. It pumps out enough air to keep millions of air bubbles going in this 200g+ Aquarium! Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days. Great Product, BUT, its noisy and vibrates like mad on its rubber feet.

"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.

Koller Products TM1050 Final Thoughts

"With the windows closed."

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. Hardly noticeable that it is running for an aquarium air pump.

3. 20 - 60 Gallon Aquarium Air Pump by Aquaculture

AQUA CULTURE First Impressions

"Value for money."

I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. Though the 18W model isn't so loud that it can only be used outside. And check the filter often, at least every two- 3 weeks. I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long. Make sure the hose is connected well. The first time I ordered this product, it did not work properly.

AQUA CULTURE Final Thoughts

"This pump is VERY quiet!"

All the reviews from all the different models are lumped together. 5 Watts, Fusion 700 rated at 6 watts,Whisper 300 rated at 7. If it craps out anytime soon, I'll update the review. It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! We can hear the tank bubbles, but nothing noisy from the pumps at all. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days. Larger tank owners won't have my issues.

"So does this one!"

My first one may have been a lemon. Make sure the hose is connected well. I like these, great deal for the price. And there are fixes around all of it. If you leave one open, it makes noise. However Once you plug it to the Oxy tubes it is Silent! I couldn't even think to do my work.

Danner 6403 First Impressions

"Super quiet!"

I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that. The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current. I knew I had to try something else. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. It has two places to hook up tubing to. It really is pretty quiet- once you unclog the air pathway.

Danner 6403 Final Thoughts

"Aaaaahhhh."

I'm sure it would run a much larger bubble stick also. A white tail deer can hear a whisper 75 yards away! Great Product, BUT, its noisy and vibrates like mad on its rubber feet. And check the filter often, at least every two- 3 weeks. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it.

"Works great and is quiet."

It has one air outlet so i used a spliter& ran a tube to each end of bubbler. I figured it would give me enough air to power 4 or 5. I'll definitely get a few more for my other tanks. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! The reviews sold me on this product but I was still skeptical​. I own Whisper 10, 150, 300, Eheim 400, and Fusion 700.

I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge.

"This is a quiet pump."

This happened to me with this unit. This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful. This is the second pump I have bought in the series. The new unit works fine as a secondary air pump in a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium. I'm sure it would run a much larger bubble stick also. Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. Just bought and started using it a few days ago.

"Insert T-valve."

I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected. If you leave one open, it makes noise. This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. I really am impressed with this air pump! The current from the bubble wand is softer but its still a current. Before the fan, it was to hot to even hold!

"As far as noise."

It has one air outlet so i used a spliter& ran a tube to each end of bubbler. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! It makes the perfect size bubbles and the fish love it. I have 3 of them on different surfaces. Don't be startled if you test it without oxygen tubes, It is Very noisy! The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another.
