I agree it can be a quiet filter most of the time. I have been changing the carbon filter insert about every four to six weeks, even though I'm sure I'm throwing out beneficial bacteria each time. I'm going to look at bio balls tonight and see if they'll help. The main reason I'm concerned is that my nitrates are still at zero after three months. That tells me the tank never really cycled.

is the filter you'er running have a single insert or dual insert ? if it has a single insert then adding bio-balls or ceramic rings will keep some of the benefical bacteria when the insert is changed out. on a dual insert unit you can just alternate replacement of the inserts.

Unfortunately, it's a single insert. I did pick up some ceramic rings, so am hoping that will help.
