I used a Duetto at one point on a 40 gallon long and had the same thing 
happen once or twice. Do you have the filter sitting vertically or 
horizontally? When mine was sitting horizontally, I would get an air buble in 
there. When you combine that with the co2 that you are pumping in, you would 
get the phenomenon you are describing. If you dont see one, it may be hidden 
in the impeller assembly.
