 Ever  seen  a  car  Silencer.
 It  expands  the  exhaust  all  of  a  sudden  and  then  compresses  it.  Its  the  same  principle.

 The  sound  gonna  have  some  vodka   Drinking   and   Sleep   Sleep   
 
 works  as  saurabh  said,  it  doesn't  silence  the  air  pump,  it  stops  the  sound  generated  at  the  tank.  it  acts  like  a  spring  on  the  air  that  is  pumped  out  (i  guess  50  times  a  sec.,  same  as  the  power  supply)

 So,  the  next  time  your  wife  nags  about  airpump  making  too  much  noise,  show  her  this  image,  rush  to  the  market,  get  yourself  a  nice  vodka  bottle.
 Convince  her,  even  a  drop  of  vodka  in  tank  can  play  real  havoc  to  the  fishes,  so  it  needs  to  be  emptied  ASAP.
 Treat  yourself.   Drinking

 hope  the  safety  factor  13  is  good  (if  the  safety  factor  >  13  i  got  to  go  for  9mm)  guess  8mm  would  be  safe,  the  height  only  12"  (rimless)
 pls  alert  me  if  something  is  wrong     Knock  
 
 
 cleaned  with  Colin,  applied  masking  tape  and  the  time  is  1:00am  Sleep   Sleep

 Lovely  thread  and  some  innovative  ideas  in  there.
 
 A  bit  disappointed  that  you  went  with  "only"  30  cm  height,  after  you've  added  your  "monument"  you  will  be  lucky  to  get  a  clear  25  cms.
 
 Minus  the  freeboard  above,  that  leaves  a  water  column  of  approx  20-23  cm  all  up,  which  is  not  enough  i.m.o.
 
 Also,  given  the  length  of  the  tank  @  1.22m,  the  overall  proportions  will  be  too  linear  imo.   I  have  a  couple  of  tanks  @  1.1-1.2  m  length,  and  I  feel  they  look  best  at  45-50  cm  height.
 
 just  my  2  cents...
 
 FE.
