Micro Bubbles

Hi all I'm having a slight problem with micro bubbles in my tank, which is coming from my skimmer. I have an aqua medic turboflotor blue 1000, it's hanging on the side of my tank as I don't have a sump. The skimmer has been running for just under 4 weeks so it should be bedded in by now. Has anyone got any ideas on what I can do. Thanks.

Maybe use a small filter sock or something where the skimmed water leaves the skimmer?

I had the same problem with my skimmer, so I took a piece of bubble trap sponge and cut a piece big enough to cover the return. Hollowed out the middle so i can put it over the pipe. Only thing about this method is you would have to clean the sponge every few days. I can get u a pic later. Hope this helps

Does anyone think this might work. I'm thinking of putting some up the outlet pipe. It's says polyfine fleece on the pack.
