Fluval Fx5 microbubble question

hello all,
i know this is an issue that has been discussed on various forums over the years, but unfortunately it is happening to me now.

I get microbubbles from mine when air from the airstone gets sucked into the intake tube. When I turn it off and back on again to allow it to do it's power-cycle, the bubbles disappear. Of course, it does it's cycle all by itself every night, but my air stone is situated so I have to play with it to get the bubbles to stay away from the intake tube.
