Re: To bubble or not to bubble?

My problem is that the filter seems to make more noise than I had initially expected. When I unplug the air valve however, the noise falls down to the operation of the machine alone (which is much less noisy).
Apologies in advance for the clearly amateur question but I suppose we must all start somewhere
thanks in advance.
the bubbles are very i important. you need the bubbles to irritate the surface of the water to keep the oxygen lvl for the fish to breath.
