Question Suggestions for filter?

Hello All!

Question for you. I'm looking for a small quiet canister for a Mr. Aqua 12 gallon long tank. i bought the zoomed turtle clean 501 and it was too loud. i was looking at the Finnex Px - 360? is is a good quiet filter. I currently have an AquaClear 30 running on a tank i currently have in the bedroom and its extremely quiet.

Anything as quit or am i better off getting another AquaClear for the tank? i much prefer a canister filter.

Also are the Eheim Classic filters very quiet? That is another option.



-New to plants not to coral. 25 gallon Reef tank.
-Soon to be 40 gallon breeder planted and i need help.

Fluval 106/206 well actually all fluval canisters are quiet. Mine's in my bedroom, so quiet the water is louder than it (since I use it to disturb my water surface).

Great canisters! Don't get the PX 360, mine never worked and left my tank cloudy for a week... the fluval got rid of that within a few hours!

Eheim Classics are dead silent. You could put a 2211 on that tank, or a 2213. I've got a 2211 running on a 12 gallon tank right now, and it's perfect.
