Skimmer Problems

I have a SeaClone 100 skimmer. When I Turn it up it produces LOTS of microbubbles that really cloud the tank. Is there anything I can do about it or should I buy another skimmer?
Thanks!!

My suggestion is to get another skimmer. I don't know much about the seaclone other then most people do not like them.

There are a lot of options for you....Check out the Octopus line of skimmers. They are reasonable in price and perform well.

I am by no means anyone that should be giving advise but..... I have a Prism skimm I believe and by adjusting the water flow I can regualte the micro bubbles. High flow for me means lot's of bubbles low flow means very little. That's just what I have found from mine. Again I am no expert. I AM A NEWBIE!!!!!
