Try closing your return line a little. Mine use to do that when I had it open the whole way

I have to cut the flow down to half to shut it up, and until I get some better circulation pumps I'll deal with it, I'm also on CL everyday looking for reef ready tanks

Be careful cutting back the flow. You could lose siphon. You should always run a siphon overflow at it's max gph.
