Question

Is this product quiet enought to be put in a tank, which is in a bedroom?

I have a 45 gallon salt water reef tank. I need a protein skimmer that is really quiet and yet is at a reasonable price. Will this skimmer disturb the fish? Is it loud?

Mine is pretty quiet and it is in my bedroom also. 40 gallon breeder mixed reef 20 gallon sump refugium. It will just be an eye sore in your tank. A tank that size will benefit greatly from a sump.

I would recommend the Seaclone. I have 3 different skimmers in 3 different tanks I've had little to no problems with the Seaclone and Prizm, but nothing but trouble with the Coralife. The Prizm might be to loud if the tank is near your bed, both the others produce similar noise levels. Problems consist of leaking and overflowing from 3 different locations, to no bubbles all starting from day one and still continuing throughout the year.

the skimmer it self is not loud but you have to provide your own air pump for it. so as long as you have a quiet pump you will do fine.

answer 2
I would use it as a hang on back. If you use it in tank without a pump make sure the cup stays above water and that the unit is somewhere where it won't fall over or be knocked down by anything in your tank. The best way though is sump or hang on back:)

out put tubing does not need to be in the water in bubble defuser. Try trimming flex hose and make sure bubble defuser is at least 1/4-1/2 inch above water

answer 2
Are you using the bubble defuser. Its a small hang on box with sponge that you put the outflow line in as it flows back into the tank. If you are using that maybe you can adjust the height and try some different heights with the outflow tube and the defuser box. I have mine in the sump and I've noticed a difference with noise and bubbles as I've played around with the defuser and the outflow height.

Thank you for your question Swisher1469. In a 130g aquarium you could use the model rated for aquariums up to 125g (SKU: 1237047) provided you have a moderate stocking load. If you are at all concerned this will not handle the stocking load in your aquarium I would suggest stepping up to the model rated for aquariums up to 220g (SKU: 1237055)
