Aqueon® QuietFlow Aquarium Power Filter 55/75
NOT AS ADVERTISED
I have to agree with the others here, this is supposed to be "QUIET", not in any sense of the word. It is so loud that in the beginning, at night, i had to play the radio to drown out the sound. I love the sound of water but this thing sounds like an overflowing bathtub. When I first got it I got up several nights to make sure the water was turned off in my sink and tub. i have since gotten used to it though. i do like the way it cleans the tank however, very efficient, but it has a very short life span. I've had it approximately 6 months and it has already stopped working and will have to be replaced. i would not recommend this item not so much because of the noise because you can get used to that but because of it's short life span.

I am on my third pump. The most recent one was quiet for a day or two. Now, even cleaning the filter pump and/or restarting it several times does not reduce the noise. Lots of vibration of the entire unit. Otherwise the unit cleans the aquarium very well. Going to buy some other brand like Aqua Clear Fluval.

I purchased this item hooked it up and I don't know how they came up the thought that it is quiet. This filter is louder than my alarm clock it is poorly disigned and did not filter very good. I usually don't write about products very often but this filter was just to bad. I would never recommend this filter brand

May be great for fish but not for turtles.
I was recommended this filter for our two turtles. We have a 3 1/2 inch yellow belly slider and a 5 inch western painted turtle. The pump worked amazing at first but after about a week of use it couldn't keep up. It may be a great pump for fish but not for aquatic turtles.
