Hopefully it was just a quirk.

Sorry, I missed this whole conversation, I was Christmas shopping. Anne, sounds like you helped out. I haven't had any problems out of mine. Josh, let us know if you need anymore help! It does sound like you found the problem.

IMO doesn't matter if you use the FX5 for SW or FW the cannister is the same. Still shopping eh? I am done, LOL.

Yep, I'm finished now! I do agree, the cannister should work the same for both SW and FW.

Well I just can not figure it out. I take it apart and put it back together and everything is fine for about 25 hours then the bubbles come back - something lets air in after it runs for a while


only thing I can think of is I wonder if it the fine filter pad causing the problem because I just started using those

Hmmm, take out the filter pad and see if it stops. The pad might just have some air in it.

Well the skimmer looks like it may be causing my air bubble problem. I didnt run the skimmer for two weeks and I had no bubbles, turned it back on and bubbles everywhere again. Is it possible that the the cannister can turn a small amount of bubbles from the skimmer into thousands of them? Im still considering contacting Fluval - I just cant tell what is causing my problem, I think it may be the skimmer but I just dont know - the skimmer has been off for ten mins but the bubbles keep flowing

Is the skimmer new, or has it been through it's "2 week" break in time?

the skimmer is six months old - everyonce in a while you will see a few bubbles come from it but nothing like what comes out of the fx5. I just cant figure out where they are coming from

Also have you ever noticed, exspecially when it the filter goes on and off, a large air bubble that comes out of the filter - enough to make a loud noise and create havoc at the top of the tank
