how do you have your return pump mounted?

i just have my pump in the sump, but it vibrates and offly lot and makes a bit of noise. Was wondering how you guys have your pumps mounted to the bottom.

thanks in advance,

Jay D

mine are just on the suction cups that come with the pumps. Make sure the return hose is not touching the sump this can cause more noise. I have had guys in our reef club use mouse pads under theres.
