Its a mixture of vibrations and the filter but i can do the noise in the day but at night it's so noisy!!

beacuase my mum doesnt want me to shell out more money on the filter as she sees the tank as a bit pointless ( My dad got it for me for my birthday)...

Yeh i wuld but my mum just doesnt want me spending much more on the tank..

yeh maybe its just a bad make plus me and a slight fault!!

I'm not familiar with that brand either. Is there an exact model # on the filter you can give us so someone here who is DIY handy might be able to help come up with a solution so you don't have to "give" your tank away? There is always a solution, we just have to find the right one!!
AqAuel fan 2 i think..
