Have been reading everywhere and can’t seem to have found a solution so I have joined the nano reef community. first of all thank you for all the answers to questions that have been relevant to me in my first reef tank, this website has helped me a lot already. I am currently running a 90L nano reef tank that was an all-in-one-by aqua one. I am approximately 4 weeks into my fishless cycle with nitrites + nitrates still fairly high but what can you do. Regardless, I have the aquaone g226.. (I think) protein skimmer running in my sump, it has already collected skimmate - however there are millions upon millions of microbubbles in my tank. It seems too far along to have not broken in so I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with the same skimmer, and if there are any possible solutions? i believe the bubbles or coming from the output or the skimmer pump however I can’t narrow it down as the sump is too small to get my head in there Lol I don’t like the idea of just turning the skimmer off at night but it looks like it will have to come to that, I have also heard that a filter sock is a possible option too. I have tried to block the microbubbles as seen below thanks in advance !
I have been running this SCA-301 skimmer in my sump for about 3 weeks and am getting an absurd amount of microbubbles still. I took a video so everyone can see how bad it really is... Dropbox link to microbubble video. The flow through my sump is pretty fast, but I need it to be so that I don't have any powerheads in my display. Anyone have ideas to help reduce these bubbles?
