Question What is that sound?

I'm going crazy. So, I preformed a water change on my sweetgirl Sushi's 10 gallon on Saturday. Ever since then, I have been hearing loud dripping noises. I do not think it's the filter, as it never made this noise, but sometimes it sounds like multiple drips at once and other times it's just one. This happens about every 30 seconds to a minute, and it is driving me absolutely insane. I though maybe the tank was cracking? I checked every inch and nothing(thank goodness), I thought maybe it was Sushi jumping out of the water, but the water doesn't move when the drip sounds happen, and neither does she. What on earth is making this sound? Thanks!

Just in case.. I would mark the tank with a marker to see where water is at.. And check near night time to see if the level dropped from the mark.. It could be the silicone seal that needs resealing..

But Bettaloveee just bought said tank... (correct?) So I guess it's possible. Do what @bluebutterfly123 said. If not, it could be condensation or bubbles from the filter.

The tank was bought in late January, but this is the only time it has made this sound, I'll mark with a marker and check later tonight, hopefully it's nothing bad, but thank you both for the help!

Could it be condensation from the lid dripping into the tank?

That's what I thought, but it's just super loud!

Lol! Me too! It's been a bit quiet today, which is strange, the silicone looks fine, still can't find the darn source!

It's got to the filter. It can't be the tank...if it were dripping there would be evidence of water around.

Can you stay around the tank long enough to figure out where its coming from.. I know me.. And that would drive me insane until I found and fixed it... Lol.. Just one of those pet peeves..
