Help with bubble trap

Hey everyone! I have a problem. Just took my sump down for two days to build in a standard three baffle bubble trap to eliminate the zillions of micro bubbles pouring in from the overflow box. Problem is that it only eliminated about 50% of the problem. Anyone have any suggestions for a bubble trap solution that does not require me to shut down again?

Here's to swimmin with bowlegged women.

-105G SPS Reef with 30G Sump/Fuge Combo
-30G LTAnemonarium with mated porcelain crabs, 10 sexy shrimp, and 2 pink skunks all tied into the other 135G in my system.

Try placing some biobail into one of the baffle compartments.


Its made for the CPR skimmer, for added biofiltration to and keep from introducing bubbles into the tank.

Try and use a Sponge of some sort.. It worked the best for me and I have read there are many others using sponges as well..
