    The fans in my lights trumped everything else for noise.

    I've got a Remora so it's the actual skimmer itself, not the pump, that's the loudest...

    Can I change my vote from skimmer pump to skimmer? It's the air mixing that causes the noise? :p

    definitely my remora. What a loud hiss it makes. Oh well that's what a 6 channel surround sound is for.
