Have a 120lt reef tank. The only item that makes noise is the skimmer. Also only 64wats when everything is on. They do cost more to run but not much more.

If the noise was loud then most likely that the propellor shafts were broken.

A pair of new shafts is only 5 euro in any pet store.


That was the problem with my 2 x Koralia 4s,both had broken shafts and make one hell of a racket.

Changed the shafts and both whisper quiet.

I was given two fans as a replacement from the fish store as it was still under garuntee . After that they had no interest in helping so I realised it was just the €€€€€ they wanted.
Might set one of they other tanks back up . Had a fluval filter and the water chemistry was perfect on it ..

Axolotl! Is that the goldfish tank from the other thread, or is it just the same background? I'd love an axolotl but Mr S sez no way.

Nope, that's the 180l Rio which used to be my community one. The other half has wanted an axolotyl
for nearly 2 years now so when that crashed I wasn't able to say no to her!

The other is still a goldfish tank. Tank 3 is the last one I posted in this thread: a subtropical and the fourth is a black pearl ranchu.
