I think a bubble curtain could possibly take some of the attention away from the rock work. I really like the rock work and think that should be the focal point. JMHO

I can't speak to the quietest but I will say do not buy a Dolphin if you don't want some racket.

I just bought a Tetra Whisper yesterday and with it sitting on the carpet it is absolutely silent. With the AC and fan going in our bedroom you can't hear it. Just make sure you set it in the carpet though or use some sort of padding because any hard surface tends to make the vibrations too loud. The Rena air pumps are also extremely quiet as well so any of those two would work fine except I think the Rena is a bit quieter on hard surfaces.

True, and another thing are the plants. I'm assuming this is the tank with the sword and more plants to come...forget bubbles. They drive off the CO2 that the plants need. Water movement in a planted aquarium should be minimal, particularly with respect to surface agitation where the gas exchanges occur (oxygen, CO2, nitrogen). B.
