Micro bubbles

Hi everybody!

I recently got a protein skimmer for my tank, and I did everything it said to do, but there are still micro bubbles in the tank. How do I get rid of them?

Thanks

If its in the sump, you can simply put a sponge in between baffles or make a bubble trap for it with new baffles. Post a pic of the setup.

Took my skimmer a week to end the micro bubbles. They just stopped!

How long ago is "recently"? They can take a couple/few weeks to break in, and will produce bubbles in the mean time.

+1, it usually takes a week or so to break in.

You can place a sponge at the outlet so the exiting water hits the sponge and the air bubbles have time to rise before getting to the main pump return line. I think someone may have mentioned this already though.
