Pump rec

Hey everyone,
I posted this in the lighting, filtration, etc. forum, but thought I would post it here too.

I am looking for a pump recommendation for a build I'm doing. It is a 29g cube. The pump will be in the sump below the tank, approximately 4ft head height. I am looking for something with enough outflow and QUIET. My wife wont be to happy if the tank makes too much noise.

Let me know what you recommend.

Look into sicce and see what fits your application, they make a very good product and for the most part are really quiet. I have heard a few reports of them not being silent enough but I couldn't hear mine.

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it into a fruit salad.
Philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is a smoothie.

Current tank info: 45g SCA Cube

Something like a Rio 2500 or 3100 would work. I've got a 2500 on my 20 gallon right now and have been very happy thus far. It's quiet, it provides plenty of flow, it's easy to clean & most LFS carry them.
