I'm going to trouble shoot it today and see where there could be air getting in. All the fittings were tight last night so I'm thinking could be the sponge that is in the wet/dry sump area....may be too pourous ...that is the stock sponge it came with.
In looking at your profile that you have your tanks photos, I only saw one under 50 gallons? Where do you have the sponge filter in it? If it's hidden behind all the plants thats pretty cool...you can't even see it.
I have a 10g, 20g, 29g and 33g tank, each has a sponge filter. The 10g has a Hydor, the 20g and 29g have a dual Elite (pictured below, this is my personal favourite), and the 33g has a little Eheim sponge with its own motor [avoids an air pump, the other two types use an air pump] but I understand they don't make these anymore. The Elite also comes in a single-sponge model.
