Is it because your pump is noisy or because the bubbles are noisy? If its the first, you can run a long air line and put your pump somewhere else.

Does your filter provide any surface agitation ? If so, you probably don't have to worry about it.

With the exception of a few specific circumstances, the air pump is completely unnecessary and is for your viewing pleasure. Adequate filtration will oxygenate the water.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
