The check valve keeps this from happening. I am bad and don't keep mine high above the filter. I should probably get a check valve too.

Mine does do the bubble thing for some reason. I don't know why. I also recommend the fluval intake foam cover Thunderloon mentioned I have them on all tanks I own. You can get a really cheap 3 pack on Amazon. I think it is like $5 for 3 which is way cheaper than in the stores.
