i avoid playing with my filter parts, i once tried to fix an aquaclear impeller that was making noise and it ended up getting bent a little, but was quieter, dunno why, but it eventually caught on the edge of something, fried my motor and spilled 10 gallons of water all over my hardwood floor, soaked through the wood, and went into my basement, damaged 2 cieling tiles and made my luggage cases that were stored there moldy. Needless to say i am never going to try and fix my own filter ever again...

no it was terrible, had to spend like 5 hrs to mop and move all the luggage cases outside to air out. I still havent changed the cieling tiles, they have these brownish stains on them and i still havent moved my tank to fix the floor, sometimes i wonder if my tank will just fall through the ground cuz the wood is weakened by water... ANYWAY, moral of the story: dont play with filter impellers.

Sounds terrible. But aren't you supposed to clean the impellor once a month?

You have mechanical and biological filtration, right? The filter you are useing appears to be an aerator. The noisy filter isn't the only filter is it?

yea u clean it, mine was making noises so i was pushing the impeller around seeing if i could alter its positioning just a little. rinsing it and brushing it is fine. My impeller was rubbing against the side of the filter intake area so it was making a light humming noise which wasnt so bad but it was annoying as hell so i thought if i could bend it away a little it would be ok, but the plastic didnt bend just the metal.
