AQUARIUM NOISES ARE DRIVING ME INSANE

the sound of the water as it leaves the overflow box and zips down to the sump is AGITATING ME incredibly. the tank is in my bedroom. its a 12x13 room not that big, the noise is UMBEARABLE. any suggestions on how to silence it?

Stick a piece of airline hose down the over flow and leave it sticking out the top so it can get air. About 12" piece should work. I did this on my bulkhead overflows and the girggle was gone.
