Is it where the water comes into the sump?

Sounds like you need to control the microbubbles from popping and water splashing, making the mist? Do you have a microsock from the return line going into the sump?

Yes it is where the water comes into the sump where water was splashing. I put an acrylic piece at the top of sump to stop the splash but now I have mist.

And no, no microsock on where the water goes into the sump. Is that the problem I am having?

Also the tube that has the water going into the sump is deep in sump about 5 inches from the bottom of sump. I'll post a picture this afternoon.

Have your line coming in below the water line. That's how mine is.

All good suggestions. Also- what about placing filter floss at the top of the chamber to prevent splashing and even a little added filtration.

Here is how mine is. Left side is where the water enters from the dt overflow.

It might be bubbles from your skimmer.
