Micro Bubbles?

Im getting tons of micro bubbles in my main tank, from my return line, from the sump. I have a 20 gal sump on a 29gal reef. Just started the sump. I have the turbofloter skimmer in the sump, and it is returing tons of bubbles to the sump.

Is there any way to cut down on all the bubbles? The Mag 5 that i am using for the return must be sucking up all the micro bubbles from the skimmer and blasting them up to my main tank, and I don't like the way it looks in there with that many bubbles.

Thanks for any suggestions!!

If the Turboflotor is new, it will take it a while to break in. New skimmers almost always produce bubbles. You might want to add some baffles to the sump if you have room for them.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
