solved the problem. was a little water in the air line so i blew it out, and shorted the tube going to the pump so the pump was closer to surface.

Has anybody used a 65gal super skimmer on a 20gal? Does anyone think it might be overkill with microbubbles and such? Thanks

I did this and it cut way down on the microbubbles.
