So my filter that I just moved to my 46 gallon tank is buzzing out the frame (a lot!!!) If you can imagine the noise that ceiling fans make when they buzz and multiply by 3, this is what you will have. It is not constant and will start and stop every other minuet or so. What should I do? I cannot afford a new filter.

Probably the impeller. Take out the tube and look down, you should see it. Take the out, look at it and see if anything is broken (google impeller for your model) and press it really good into where you took it out.

all that, plus maybe get a small piece of foam and place it under the filter just where it rests on the edge of the tank. should absorb some of the buzz. that or a cloth of some kind.
