Fixed the problem with overflow water level was to high, but my protein skimmer is still creating bubbles (ASM G1X) can't figure it out, going to LFS tomorrow to ask them and see if they can fix the problem, they sell the same one there. Hopefully they know the prob. Thanks for your help.

was the skimmer just recently setup? if so the micro bubbles will go away once it breaks in

the skimmer is doing what it's supposed to do- create bubbles. that foam tube around the riser tube is not to remove micro bubbles, but to quiet the splashing and limit salt creep.
it's the sump's bubble trap that is there to remove bubbles before they hit the display.
