Currently I have the tunze nano ATO on my nano tank. Naturally since it’s now in the living room the wife says it’s loud. I agree it is loud and always has been, especially now in comparison to the mini DC Hydros ATO pump.

Question is can I buy a small micro pump (linked below) cut the plug off and run it’s two wires into the Tunze controller and run that as the pump?
