Micro bubble from the skimmer, HELP!!


Recommended Posts

Micro bubble is coming out of the my return pipe from my skimmer. It is traveling through my sump and back into my tank, making the tank cloudy.DOH!

I tried using a filter sock, but it didn't help much. The sump does have a bubble trap.

Skimmer is a Reef Octopus in sump with a 15x9 footprint.


any suggestion is appreciated!

Just give all the system some time to break in. It can takes 1 or 2 months. If you are still having micro bubbles by then it can be something you would like to check.

Turn off the skimmer for the first month at least... there is no need to having it running. You need some nasty water to cycle the new tank.
