    Does anyone use a ehiem compact2000 as a return on a 4x2x2? I am using a ehiem 1260 at the moment and it's noisey as hell due to have it having no suction feet to stop vibrating on the glass, I have a compact 2000 and is silent but don't know if flow through sump is enough?

    It's not noise but vibration sets up a resonance from the connecting pipes
