Generally you dont need to worry about that. Remember, the whole surface of the water is open to air and anything thats in it. Bacteria and other things are actually beneficial in an aquarium, converting ammonia to nitrite, then nitrate, and doing other useful things. If you want you can get a check valve that has a sponge filter in there and put that in line on the tubing, which will also prevent a back siphon draining your tank onto your floor. Your fish are going to be exposed to pathogens no matter what you do, so make sure to keep their stress levels down and they should be fine. Good luck!

^ Lol, well despite what you MEANT to say if you reread your post you will see that while perhaps vague, the inclusion of this statement clearly indicates that your aim it so protect your fish. I suggest using the edit feature when you realize this understandable mistake.

Lol a little 'noid then, I see. Try rigging something up with a film canister filled with polyfil, then just drill holes in each end and hot glue aquarium tubing on both sides. Should do the trick nicely. Also, check out what they have at pet shops, the check valve i described above may be just what you're looking for. Anyway, sorry for the misunderstanding I actually do keep fish and post on fish message boards so this post did not seem out of place. As far as rattling on the table try something soft like polyfil inside a little paper towel envelope to set it on, but there will be that telltale pump sound no matter what you do, the amount of noise dependant on the quality of the pump and the air output.

EDIT most aquarium pumps do not have an "intake" so your only option is usually going to be to push the air through some sort of filter like the one I described above.

inline cartridges can be made quite simply. Take a film canister. Cut a whole. Stick in tube.. some hot glue to seal. Put some polyfil in the canister.. make a holes on the other end.. hot glue that and ther you go.. some simple inline filters.

I know what strikes me as odd about this. It is totally unnatural. The whole idea is just totally backwards.

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.

I ONLY STUDY legal, edible mushrooms and mycology. Any mention of any other kind of mushroom is purely fictional, and pictures are ripped from the internet. I do not grow mushrooms!

It's like tyvek but it's less dense, it helps filter out the air, used here for terriums/jars and several other things, it allows for a good air exchange while keeping out alo of airborne crap that you don't want inside whatever you've got
