I find a lot of blankets over a pump in a small box with holes helps. but beware that if you get used to it when you sleep it could cause sleeplessness when you discontinue...snnxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

We have a fish tank and my wife is SUPER SENSITIVE to ANY NOISE, Sooo I went to extreme lengths and built a mini-sound proof room that held 2 pumps.
This consisted of a drywall box 6" X 6" X 12", THEN a 6" air space was constructed AROUND the smaller box. Using 6" pieces of 2x4 and drywall screws, I was able to lightly frame it out and screw it together, then caulk the seams. It was made somewhat easier because of the ease of scoring, and snap cutting the drywall sheet. This however; made it rather heavy. If I were to use plywood for this project I think I might add something to the 6" air space to deaden the sound bounce. I tried the spray foam insulation but the can's just don't hold enough to make it work.
It took a little figuring but turned out very nice. Not 100% but at least an 80% reduction in noise. Don't forget to add a small hose of "In Air" to compensate for the air being pumped out, & the pump access needs to have the same 6" dead airspace.
Anyhow, that's the only way I know. Do an internet search for building soundproof rooms and just make a smaller one.
PS How do I get a little pic in the window to the left?
I just can't find the prefernce to set it.

a box full of polyfil with the pump in the middle helps.
