Waterpipe in my living room....

Ok so I've got the sump going...... the outflow from the tank is basically an overflow setup using a pipe...... but now that it's running, my tank sounds "gurgly" .... is there any way to fix this?????

I have heard that if you stick a piece of airline tubing down the overflow this is supposed to get rid of the noise. But I haven't had the chance to try it out myself.

I've tried the airline tubing to no avail. Still gurgling. Might need to try a longer length to get down to the bend.
How much tubing (lenght) did you use?
