Cant stop microbubbles

Hey guys and gals

The last week my rsm250 won't stop micro bubbling my tank up only way to stop it is turn the skimmer off
I've cleaned everything followed the trouble shooting guide watched the DVD and I still fix the mongrel

Any advice or tips tricks would be great

All live stock are happy except the shrimp there a bit spooked

Are you running a HOB skimmer? If so turn it off and see if that is where they are coming from.
