I have bought my fishes a air pump and stone so they can have bubbles , I know they might not need them , but I think they look nice and fish seem to enjoy playing in them. I admit the sound of the pump is a bit of a pain I imagine this could be the start of the search for a quiet pump. More money.

You should barely hear a pump, a slight hum at most, but a lot depends on whether you have bought the right sized pump for the device you have attached to it, and the type of surface on which the pump sits. Is it possible to try hanging the pump by a string so it is in free air and not touching any solid surfaces?

It amazes me that in this day & age with all the technology we have that nobody has managed to come up with an air pump that is silent, someone out there must have brains to do it surely :lol:

bit of old carpet does the trick...also underlay.

as suggested the hanging on a hook works..

Have put it on a timer that comes on for a while whilst I am in bed. :lol: don't hear it anymore, to be honest its a bit like a new clock that ticks until you get use to them they sound sooooooo loud but after a few days you don't notice them.

It always amazes me how silent the house is in a power cut. You don't notice the quiet hums of fridge, freezers, computers etc until they are turned off.
