Protein Skimmer problem?

I purchased the Seaclone 100 and it was working well for a few weeks. Last week I did a water change, and now it is spilling lots and lots of tiny bubbles into the tank(55 gal). All levels are normal, and I have two small clowns in it right now. No matter how i adjust it, it still spills tons of bubbles into the tank.

Any idea why this is happening?

Seaclone's are notorious for micro bubbles, and no offense, but they are kind of junk, i would try to return it and upgrade if it's possible. Alot of LFS's don't mind returning equipment if you're going to get something a little better. If you're on a budget, as most of us are, coralife makes a decent skimmer that is quite economical. Cheers!
Mike

Thanks for the tip Mike. I'll look into the coralife.

Melosu, I work in Midlo, live in Mechanicsville.
