Glad it helped! I think when I had bunches from the initial setup of my tank it took 3-5 days to go away completely, but that was allot of bubbles on the side of the tank and such....

hello i don't have a fuge but i did have the micro bubble problem. i did the sock thing as mentioned before. that helped. i really noticed a diiferance when i increased the amount of water in the sump . i found a good level and marked it when it below the line i see bubbles. so i keep an i on it and just add water to the line. just my opinion.

Thanks for the info guys, the loop seems to be working, plus i put some teflon tape around the top of the bulkheads where the tubes go up to the tank, that seems to have helped as well, thanks guys

Marine Depot sells a "filter sock" fpr $8, but it is generally a 100 micron draw string media bag.
