Micro Bubbles

I recently switched my 55gallon to a 46 gallon bow front.

now there are tiny bubbles coming out from the trickle system through the return.

it is so bad it almost makes the tank look cloudy, i thought they would wrk themselves out since we just set everything up, but they are really starting to bug me

any tricks?

This problem source is often the water chemistry and the protein skimmer together.

Does it keep making micro bubbles when you turn off the skimmer for few minutes ?

Did you do a big water change ? The skimmer can do microbubbles for 1 day after a water change. Microbubbles is not nocive on short term.
