eheim vs hydor vs quiet one pumps

Hey

I just bought a cheap Ecoplus pump and it is very noisy. I want to replace it with either the hydor, eheim, or quiet one. Is there a real difference in how quiet they are?

Thanks!

Measuring tools for dry fertz

Hey

Never used dry fertz before. I need to add very little amount (as little as 0.1 gr...) . Any recommendation on where and what kind of measuring tools to use to dispense such small amounts?
