Quietest Aquarium Air Pumps 2020: Reviews and Buying Guide

aquarium filter noise reduction

“Live and let live.” This is a code that I live by.

My code extends to non-humans as well. Be it my pet dogs or fishes in the nice big aquarium I have in my living room, I strive to make life a bit better for them each day.

That’s why I’m a vocal advocate of installing air pumps in aquariums.

For those of you who don’t know, air pumps are devices that create a water current in fish tanks and oxygenate the water by infusing air particles in the process.

This helps fishes by mitigating their oxygen demands. Some air pumps even run additional devices like under-gravel filters and decorative objects.

But, there’s a problem. As these machines run on motors, these can be noisy at times. Add to that the casing which vibrates constantly creating an engine-like sound.

To solve this problem and to keep our fish buddies in a healthy environment, let’s discuss some of the quietest aquarium air pumps with sound masking technology.

In this article, I’ll be reviewing the top 5 contenders and telling you why I chose them in the first place. Take the maintenance tips at the end as a bonus. Let’s dive in!
