Need to quiet down pump

I have a mag 3 pump running by Aqua C Urchin skimmer and a mag 7 return pump. Sitting on the bottom of my sump the make a lot of noise. What can I put under them to isolate then and reduce the vibration?

I had some suction cups from another pump I had. They fit on the Mag 7 like they were made for it. I have heard of guys using a mouse pad under there pumps.

They also have the sticky foam pad that comes with some of them at lowes. I have also used the rubber feet you can get at lowes and HD.
