Just set up my fluval 13.5 evo, the pump is noisy even though it's not touching anything. Any help is appreciated!

Is it new and I assume you have stripped it down and checked it over and cleaned it? Might be the vibration on the return pipe so maybe take a look to see if the elbow is rattling from the vibration.

Following along with interest as I maybe getting one of these tanks but not if the return pump is noisy.
