    Hi guys, I was trawling and came across this

    Same issue for me and as I'm in planning mode I thought I'd throw it out there. What are the noise issues and how have you solved them?

    From my experience it's

    1. Overflows- looks like bean animal is the answer
    2. Skimmers
    3. Pump hum - I'm thinking of a vortech
    4. Ballasts - got electronic Meanwell's so looking good there.

    And another strange one. Anyone tinted there tank? I battle with the amount of light the tank blasts into your room, particularly the blues and my wife has a tendency to get migraines from photo sensitivity. So I was wondering about a light tint...... I know it's odd but there shouldn't be any technical issues should there?
