Yes. Splashing is what's causing the salt creep. Stop whatever bubbles or splashing and the salt mess will stop also.

Most of it comes from my protein skimmer n I don't want to get rid of it. Is there any other option or I just have to deal with bc of I have that kind of setup?

Where are the bubbles coming from exactly? Is the water that's leaving the skimmer falling a bit before it reaches the tank?

Find the source of the splashing or bubbles. Try filling your tank to the top as much as you can.

I tried to upload a photo of the skimmer return hose. Not sure if I did it correctly.
