    You can install one of these to the top of each durso, it gives one more control and silences it more. All you hear is a slight hiss from drawing air. I use these on all my overflow dursos. 6mm hole on top with the white pipe fits tight.[​IMG]

    I would but black ABS sheet at the back. Especially against the overflow. To hide the pipes. Can do the sides against the wall as well. Pump will then not be that noticeable.

    ABS sheet comes in 1.3mm thickness. That is very stiff and will stay put. Can even use the powerhead magnets to keep it in place.
