I have it in a couple of tanks. Kind of reminds me of a "Brazilian Sword," a peace lily, except it doesn't, y'know, die in a week from being grown underwater. However, they don't seem to grow, either. Just sorta maintains.

All filters are going to use an impeller to push water -- I don't know of any other design that can do it. Your Fluval 405 should be pretty quiet, though the '06 is better.
