I installed the Korillia pumps and they have an annoying hum.One was much worse than the other so I took that one and placed it in the sump.I can hear it over my fans and the wave box so I know I am not crazy(well I know I am letting myself into that one)I don't know if its because they are new that they hum.Maybe this is normal but one of them was pretty annoying.I will see tonight with the fans off how loud the other one is.The wave box and lights will be shut off so I can hear if its bad or not.Maybe the one pump is loud.Well in my sump who cares.The only thing is I didn't need any more power heads.I have enough sitting in a bin.

well one is very annoying the other has a slight hum.I can hear the one I placed in my sump and I have 2 dart pumps in there.plus all the other stuff and I can hear it hum.Its working properly but it should be a lot quieter.

This coming from you!Yah right.Its not my imagination J.The frickin pump hums and its annoying.Its a vibrating hum.The one in the tank isn't that bad.You can hear it when the lights are off so its ok.The other one was to loud a hum.I switched out my lights last night(I couldn't wait)I will try and take some pics.I had 150 watt 14k(cheap bulbs)mh and I got the guiessman 14.5 k.Hahn said they are good bulbs.I had a mix of 10 k and actinic T5 bulbs.I got the guiessman blue plus and actinic bulbs.I will see what it looks like.I do realize that it takes 100 hours to burn in the MH bulbs.

Well here are some pics.The bulbs have more of a 10 k look to them(yellow)I don't know if its because they didn't burn in yet.10 k is better for growth.I did notice that corals grow faster under 10 k lights.
