Hello All, New tank still cycling with new skimmer all been running 2 weeks. I have micro bubble problems. I wonder if someone would be so kind to help me please. Currently, water goes into filter sock, over a baffle into a skimmer compartment and then under a baffle into another section. This then goes over a baffle to return pump. I originally had skimmer in return pump section but micro bubbles were terrible so i moved skimmer last week to the section after sock. That has reduced the bubbles by half but still have way too many. I then have put sponge that i am getting ready for my QT tank (as an experiment today) under the baffle from skimmer to section 3 but would this be better with filter floss between egg crate that is raising the skimmer?
Do these settle as skimmer breaks in or tank matures. Hering these bubbles are not good with fish that have mucas like clowns and of course makes tank cloudy?
