I'm not sure... It could be substrate... Fish... (let's hope not)... Water... Who knows? Pop the hood and check it out.

Pumps may burn out over time, or the inside rubber diaphragm could be wearing out.

So I opened her up and everything looks good. I think it's just a vibration in the case. I think I will line it with electrical tape.
