Ok, I've searched through several threads and they all say to use foam rubber to stop vibrations. My Eheim 1250 is causing my aluminum case to resonate/vibrate or something. It's annoying. I went out and bought all sorts of rubber washers and mounted my pump to my case using them. It still vibrated a little so I went and bought a mouse pad and cut it up to make some more washers(I think this is foam rubber). I put these in the stack on my mount. The nuts are tightened super tight and I can't feel anywhere on my case that is vibrating now -- but now my desk (the part where I rest my feet and also where my computer rests)is vibrating. WT? My parents bought this new desk without asking anything and it's nice except for the fact that it took all the room I had to put it on the carpet(which gladly absorbed any vibrations. I think the fact that 2 or 2 and a half of the feet are resting on the desk may have somethign to do with the fact that its vibrating... any ideas?
