Well like the title says I would love to figure out a way to make my skimmer more quiet. I can handle some noise but it is pretty loud adn I would love for it to not be as loud. If you know of an easy way please let me know and post either pictures or links to your information. Thank

I added a few feet of airline tubing, that seemed to quiet it down.

make your own air silencer,for example a empty asprin bottle with holes in top and bottom of bottle same diameter as air line stuff a little paper towel to muffle inside bottle not enough to plug air flow

Great ideas guys now I have to steal my asprin bottle and try it. I believe this is the first project that I have all the equipment for. I am going to try both right now. Thanks. Oh and Anemonebuff did youjust put standard airline tubbing in the tubbing that came with the skimmer or did you actually get some that is the same as the skimmer?
