if you have the remora, i suggest u buy a prefilter box. the pre-filter box draws water from the surface rather than the bottom of tank. It has a collection chamber for the skimmed water which can serve as a media container, it can be left empty with just a small piece of sponge which eliminates the bubbles or filled with different types of media for further filtration.
we opted not to do the latter because we didnt feel the prefilter can hold the weight of more media in that container. But, it took care of the micro-bubble problem. and the skimmer supposedly is working 20% more efficiently.
