Skimmer problems

Hey everyone out there,

I have a quick question...well I have a AquaC remora skimmer and the problem is that it is hardcore on the microbubbles. Yeah well I know microbubbles are a good thing to some degree but there is so much of them I was wondering if anyone knew how I could fix this. Any comments or awnsers would be greatly appreciated.Thanks a million.

Matt

Well here is what I think it is peronally...It is breaking itself in (brand new skimmer) and im using Prime the water conditioner and it makes a slime coat for the fish...and well the rest speaks for itself if anyone has any suggestions please respond

give it time to break in.

I use prime in all my tanks, and it does not affect skimming in my SW setup. Slime enhancers like aloe vera are what will make a skimmer freak out.
