ok this is a stupid question!

i just got my skimmer today and its a cheap visi-jet. thats all i could manage to get right now for awhile. So i set it up but i can't get the bubbles to stop comeing out the bottom where the water comes out. I got them all over. Does anybody know how to fix it or will it go away as it breaks in?

Place a sponge at the water exit point, will help to break up the bubbles.

Never had that kind but that is a normal symptom of break in for skimmers

The bubbles may go away some as it breaks in. I had a visi-jet as my first skimmer and they are worthless, sorry. They "dirty up" the display b/c they take up so much in tank space and their performance is well, horrible at best. IMO/IME they are absolutely useless. Even the ph they come w/ stinks

Water conditioners/dechlorniators can also create mass bubbles. I would use something that won't affect the skimmer such as 'Prime'. It took about two weeks for my skimmer to "break in" and stop producing microbubbles.
