Hi

My FLUVAL FX5 Canister Filter (two of them) now does anyone have any of these and if so are they noisy ?

I can put them in the stand or in the shed attached to the living room wall and simply run the pipework out there, just not sure of the noise these things are going to make (they are huge)

Regards

John B

Anyone else had any experience with the FX5's? My tank is in my room and i had to turn it off last night due to a large humming noise!

I run two of these in my living room on my 5ft and have no noise problems at all. I think there really quiet for the size of the filter. There not in the cabinets either

i sometime get a humming noise when i clean out my eheim 2213. To stop this i removed the end cap from the spray bar for a bit (to get all the air out) and out it back on. After that it's dead quiet. Maybe you can try that.
