my 55 gallon tank has a built in overflow sump filter system. I attempted to perform a water change and as soon as I removed one bucket of water from the tank, the pump began to make noise because there was no water coming into the sump area. How can I perform water changes?

Thanks for your suggestions.

should I maybe just turn of the pump, during the change?

Generally you turn off the pumps + filters and the such; once you fill it up again it will be fine.
