    It could be due to your powerhead placement in the tank that you asked for last night.

    I haven't moved it as of yet, about an hour ago the overflow started making swishing and gurgling sounds and dumping loads of bubbles in sump.

    The Aquaria tanks do that. Bend that bottle brush in the pipe so that it is kind of spiral shaped, this will break the whirlpool and dampen the sound. Bubbles in the sump are no big problem, is your skimmer in the first chamber? If so, the bubbles in the sump help it out, just make sure you have a lid on the far left to break the salt creep. I also added a pool gobbler filter sock to the outlet to quieten it down.
