I recently purchased an Aqeon Quite Flow 20 for a 10 gallon quarantine tank that is in my bedroom.
The thing was that the filter made a horrible sound from the impeller, normally I can sleep with the gentle hum of filters but the noises were unbearable!
So I came across a solution I found on YouTube, wish I saved the link, where the impeller shaft was coated with a slim layer of Vaseline to cease the annoying noise, I used vegetable oil. To my surprise the filter was silent when I plugged it back in!
Has anyone tried this solution before? I wouldn't think small amount of vegetable oil would wreak havoc on my tank or am I wrong?
