my bubble trap is after the first sump section. sometimes i wonder if it should have been right before the return. but seeing as how i don't seem to have any issues i guess im ok.

Ok I drew up the plans for the trap being after first chamber but then I though maybe it should be before the return in incase bubbles form after it goes through the fuge chamber. I have seen both setups though.

I'm still finding both ways are ok. Hopefully mr x can chime in. I would like to see what he thinks is better.

i like the bubble trap before the return pump. bubbles in the refugium never mattered to me.

So it really makes no difference in the filtration? For example would it be better to put it after the fuge because it would slow the flow through the lr and cheato if you put it before it? I'm going to go wilhvwhat you say because I know you know what your doing but I have been wondering about it all day. Thanks x

na..it has nothing to do with filtration and everything to do with stopping micro bubbles from entering the display tank.
