    welcome to MASA!:) vibration from a pump or something could be causing it.
    a pic would maybe help.

    I think we are often too impatient to resolve tank or many other problems. I also had a very irritating pump noise that I could not fix. Two evenings ago I decided to spend a bit more time with the pumps. It took less than 30 minutes and the tank noise is once more totally overshadowed by the frogs around the croc ponds.:1:

    After my pumps got sorted the overflow noise seemed to get more loud by the day. Well I fiddled with the overflow and the noise is just about gone. Maybe the lesson here is to remember maintenance is an ongoing thing and if it is done properly our tanks will be much easier to manage.
