Micro Bubbles

You don't have the air intake tubes on the phs, do you? My ph will spout out bubbles, for a few seconds, if I turn them off and then back on.

You will be fine sometimes skimmers take some fine tuning but once you get them to work you will get the hang of it.

Hey Roka no I dont have them on...the little airtube intake thing for adj the air flow is plugged. I unplugged the skimmer this am before I left for work and I am going to try a few other things when I get home...

How often does it happen that the critters and fish ingest bubbles? Is it something that has a slim chance or is it something likely to happen? YOu know I just need another thing to worry about

The reason I asked, was we had a post like this, but not micro bubbles, just bubbles. We were troubleshooting for a few days, turns out the intake tubing was plugged into the phs. One person thought to ask that question and the problems was solved.

Maxi Jets are generally good cheap powerheads that do not have any issues.

Don't take this wrong, but are you sure you are not blowing anything around in the tank with the Ph's?

Did you play with the level adjustment of the skimmer?

Hey Tomd and Roka...did not take it wrong at all as I checked that out for sure because that is what I thought too...I will see what it looks like when I get home as the skimmer has been off all say and if there is no bubbles I know its the culprit....its so good to have different feedback from all different sources as its great to trouble shoot...I have been researching on the net today and found some forums with those skimmers that suggested some different things..I have played with the level also but I think its going to be a trial and error thing....they are pretty highly rated so that is good..I think its just one of those little hurdles I have to figure out..if not they will drive me to drink but hey I have AA right?

I hear that one! For a relatively cheap costing skimmer, I am a big fan.
