I have a seclone 100 and it is spilling out large amounts of very fine bubbles. Is this normal or does it need fixed. I can' t seem to get it adjusted right. Please help me.

if its new, give a few days. they take time to break in. if its not new, does it have a bubble baffle? and, if it does have a bubble baffle, do you rinse the bubble sponge regularly?

Sometimes if the skimmer has just been cleaned or you have done a water change, the surface tension of the water changes a bit and will cause bubbles. My skimmer always put some bubbles in the tank, but after water changes it really bubbles for an hour or 2. A bubble baffle is a good idea....i think im gonna DIY one!
