Dead Guppy And Filter which is VERY NOISY.........

Firstly my guppy dies this morning!! It was on its side lying on the bottom of the tank and then it started sort of swimmin side ways so i left it in ther and about 2 hours later it was just lying under the driftwood dead.......................
Secondly hence posting in the equipment bit, my filter is incredably noisy?! It has been noisysince i got it but i found a way to quieten it, but this morning it waas really really noisy... So i did a water change because of the sick fish then i cleaned out my filter. Still very noisy.. Any 1 have any ideas solutions, im phoning the fish shop and if theres nothing they can do i am thinking og giving the fish away and puttigjn the tank in storgae... The filter is an Aquael filter... And if i did have to pack it away it would mean i have lost nearly a 100.........................................

Thumbs up

I have an idea about the filter. When you put it on it makes noise right?? so turn it on in the day and before u go to bed turn it off. The fish won't run out of oxygen that fast...

or check the impeller... usually filter noise comes from the impeller. If its bent even a little it will make a whirling/grindish rapid clicks.

if the impeller is ok, then the only other options are the motor (misalignment, lack of lubrication) which means u need to get a new one anyway, or the design is flawed and its just a noisy filter by design.

How did you reduce its noise?

Glad you got it figured out...

Usually when my filter starts making noise it's due to something vibrating against something... and I just muck around with it until it quiets down again. It could be the lid got misaligned somehow, or I'll wiggle the flow adjustment back and forth a bit until I can get it sitting in a spot where the vibration goes away... or else it'll be loud if there's something clogged at the intake.
