The Petco Arc 3.7 is set up. I must say that the pump/tube is a pain to install. The back compartment it goes into is small, and it was constantly falling apart as I bumped my not-that-huge-hand around the glass. It took me awhile to get it in place.
The pump is fairly quiet. This decibel-rating app on my cell phone registered about 54 decibels right next to the aquarium, which is considered "average quiet street." At an arm's length, it registered 46 decibels, aka "average quiet home."
Substrate is sand with root tabs. Plants flame moss, include crypts in the back, one bolbitis, dwarf sag and one little. I just set it up, so it's a little cloudy. Future fish: a pair of australe killies.
