Not only do the filters make noise, but they can air lock if you are running 
a higher bubble count.  I was running a CO2 line into my Eheim 2228, not only 
did it make a lot of noise that I would think could damage the internals of 
the filter, but ultimately I had 2 incidents where the filter quit running.  
Lots of dead fish.  I would get a reactor if I were to do it again.
