Any supplement to maintain good parameters or any chemical. If not you might need to fine tune it. Close the valve all the way and open it slowly until you get the right amount of bubbles going to collection cup. The micro bubbles in your tank is normal specially after water change. It will slowly disappear.

Waste control? That's probably the cause. Skimmer is working double time. You can stop microbubbles by covering the outlet with some sort of fine filter tied to the back.

Are the bubbles inside the main cylinder larger than usual? How long did you have this skimmer?

It is working double time due to the chemicals you added to your tank. What do you mean by waste control?

You have to turn your skimmer off during the night and wait until whatever additive you put in has finally subside.

Manufacturers of additives will include instruction to turn off skimmer when treating tank.
