Skimmer query..

Hey guys,

I have two tanks which both use a venturi powered hob skimmer.. my larger tank seems to have no problems with the bubbles that end up in the tank but my small one is going crazy.. little bubbles everywhere..and its making the tank very "cloudy" like.. doesnt look to flash.. just wondering if theres anything that i can do, or might be wrong that i can do to minimise the bubble-age?

YOu can try placing a small piece of foam on the retun of your skimmer. This should help catch some of the bubble before they are dumped into the tank.

Also make sure you're tank is filled up pretty far so the return water is not splashing down into the tank.
