XR30 g4 pro fan noise question

Hi

I just read and want to confirm that the fan stays on on the XR30 and is quite loud. Is that correct?

I had my local shop order me 2 XR30. Now Iím thinking I should have gone with 15ís.

Hopefully my lfs can exchange them

I have had 4 of the gen 4's for about a year and yes the fans do stay on 24/7, but I can't hear them until I get my ear within a foot of them.
Standing in front of the tank, normal viewing distance ( 2-3 feet away) I do not hear them.

I have no idea how you don't hear them. I sleep on the 3rd floor of my townhouse and I can clearly hear the xr30 from my bed at night. I regret buying these lights.

Why are the fans on all the time if the lights aren't?
