VIVOSUN AP-45 First Impressions

Now close to the glass.

If you leave one open, it makes noise. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days. I knew I had to try something else. I have one running to sponge filters in a tank and it pushing a nice air flow. I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long. Just bought and started using it a few days ago. After nearly 5 months of use, it stop pumping air.

VIVOSUN AP-45 Final Thoughts

Excellent pump.

I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you. It has two places to hook up tubing to. I have this in our small aquarium with an LED bubble stone. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. I did notice that it tends to run very loudly and hot.
