Silent corner filter for office.

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, can anyone recommend an effective, silent corner filter for a 33cm cube tank?

Cheers ?

This is looking like a good candidate at the moment: http://www.thetechden.com.au/Aquael_Pat_Mini_Filter_for_tanks_10_80_liters_p/111605.ht

What about a small Eden canister filter?

Those internal filters like the Aquael you linked are nothing more than powerheads that move water around. They don't offer much filtration capabilities.

True. Guess there's not much sponge for biological filtration on it :/ I was hoping it'd act somewhat like a sponge filter minus the noisy air pump.

Eden canister looks legit, thanks @jayc

You're welcome.

I have the Eden 511. 600L/hr.

Silent as can be, and can cope with filtration for my 60L 2 footer breeding tank.

but the 501 I linked should be sufficient for a 30cm cube.

I use the Eden external filters. I can highly recommend them.

Looks like it's settled and I'll set up an Eden! Thanks guys, I reckon you've likely saved me a lot of frustration!

I didn't realise they still made the Eden filters. My AquaOne internal job on the 29L AquaOne kit isn't coping so well.

      Hey guys, I’m going away for a few weeks and having a neighbour take care of my tank, as they are already gonna be caring for my cat during that period. I’ll be away for 2 and a half weeks, so not a huge amount of time, but the neighbour doesn’t have any experience with fish or shrimp tank maintenance.
      The tank will be fine without a water change during that time as long as I do one before I leave, I know that, but my 2 main problems are feeding and stopping my intake sponge from clogging up.
      For feeding I was considering getting a couple of pill boxes, like the ones that have seperate compartments for each day of the week, so I can set a certain amount for each day, and which foods.
      But for the intake sponge, I’m pretty stumped. My current intake is a sponge filter connected to the intake pipe, but it’s been clogging up once or twice a week due to how fine it is (and how messy my fish are). When it’s clogged, it puts strain on the canister filter’s motor, and that’s not good. I don’t trust her with cleaning it safely, plus I’m only paying her for 5 mins in the morning, and 5 at night. I’ve considered a mesh intake, but it looks like it could hurt a fish if it went past it quickly... plus I can’t check the size of the inside where the pipe could go as the only one I’ve found would have to be posted.
      Are there easy alternatives that I wouldn’t have to mod, or do intake sponges come in courser versions? (I haven’t checked).
       
      Any input would be appreciated!

      Hey guys!
      Just wondering if any of ya'll have experience keeping filter feeder shrimp? They're fairly common here although most of the LFS tend to stock lethargic specimens that seem to be on their last legs 😕 Just need some advice on how to spot and pick out healthy specimens for my community tank 😄  
      Also, anyone know where I could find the less common wood shrimp on steroids? Let me know 🙂

      Hi folks,
      i have received some beautiful CRS from heavyD today and i have a situation with the current being too fast for the shrimp to swim very well in. I have the spraybar just below the surface and angled slightly up for maximum oxygenation but it still seems to be a little fast at the lower level of the tank, i can see moss swaying around and the shrimps being blown across somewhat when they try to swim. There is quite a "whirlpool" effect happening.
      Aside from replacing the canister with a smaller one; how does one go about lessening the current inside the tank? I thought of 2 solutions but I don't know how wellthey will do or exactly how to implement them -
      1)I could make more holes or make the holes larger in the spraybar?
      2) cover it with a stocking or sponge or something to slow down the water as it shoots out the holes in the spraybar.
      cheers
      love n peace

      Hi all,
      thought i'd post a quick description of my experience with the fluval q2 "quiet pump"
      the pumps have 2 outputs and a great flow-rate for the price, i bought one of these and it was extremely quiet - i was very impressed, a few weeks later i got another one, fantastic! a few weeks later again and the older one had started vibrating and rattling, shortly after then so did the second quiet pump.
      I read up about it and saw someone mention something in another forum about how they discovered a loose screw inside the pump, i intended to take mine apart and look for said "loose screw" but didn't get around to it yet and have just put up with the noise. anyway i have since discovered 2 of the main screws on the bottom that hold the unit together had fallen out completely on one of them, and 1 screw has also fallen out on the other unit. im quite disappointed - i haven't gotten around to trying to fix the units yet and i'm optimistic that i can figure out how to "shut them up" but i'm still not happy that they have failed to meet expectations 1-2 months after purchase !
      BY COMPARISON -  my older schego m2k3 and WS series pump are incredible - soooo so quiet still, @ineke (and others) had recommended the schego brand in a thread here and i'm glad i followed their advice initially before i took my chance on the fluval pumps - i will stick with schego in future - well worth the extra cost for the low-noise and the quality!
      love n peace
      will

      Had a quick look in my new invertebrates book and think they are Limnopilos naiganetri! If so it says temperature 24 to 28, Ph 7.5 - 8.5. They should be given driftwood and floating plants. It also says that although they carry eggs, raising the young has not been done in captivity (book produced 2015). This youtube video says she has had breeding though???? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPOIq4AsZCE I had thought about getting some in the past but as she says they are a bit like spiders so that put me off................ Hope everything else is going well still! Simon

      I'm really happy, finally a local shop in Hong Kong had some of these crabs, not to sure which variation of the spider crabs,, but they advertised them as miniature spider crabs (Limnopilos naiyanetri) , I was going to bring them back from Taiwan if I find any, but no need now, got them for about GBP 13.50 for 10 crabs, I will pick up another 30 crabs in the next few day.   The first photo is the crabs in the bag, I won't get home till tmr, the second photo is taken at the shop.

      You can do large water changes, I do it every 6 months to reset the minerals in the water, but you cannot just dump the new water back into the tank. It needs to be fed in slowly. I drip in the new water after adjusting it to match previous parameters.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Shrimp don't need much of a water change as they are low bioload! I have 30L and only do 2L per week so as with JayC cut back on the water change amount, even .5 litre would be ok! Large water changes tend to trigger moulting so they may be moulting too often? They may drop the eggs if they aren't fertilised and therefore unwanted! Have you seen any that look to be able yet?
