    So i have removed the suction mounts and added the magnets to the 12000L sun suns. Now the tank has a vibration - you can feel it if you put your hand on the glass as well as hear a noise its noticeable quieter once i put the pumps off and i need this tank as silent as possible. It never had this issue with the suction cups. Any ideas of how to eliminate this issue

    Try a piece of rubber or something like that between the magnets and the glass

    Try placing rubber washers (like what we use in the taps) between the magnets and glass, otherwise, buy another tank :p

    Great idea.

    LOL already saving towards a 6ft FO tank:lol: so maybe once the current tank is too small giving it about a year or 2 will get another.
