Quietest filter for a 55g tank?
I'm moving my 55g tank into my bedroom, so want to replace the AquaClear HOB filter i've got with something quieter. I've pretty much ruled out another HOB because housings can rattle if anything's amiss, and they splash loudly when the water level drops from evaporation (live in the desert, so things evaporate fast)
Not sure I want the expense & hassle of a canister filter--unless someone can recommend one that's economical and easy to clean.
Would a simple sponge filter (or several) run off a powerhead be the quietest option? This will be a breeding tank for an angel pair, so it'll need gentle circulation, not a maelstrom.
Any & all suggestions appreciated!
