touchy CPR BakPak skimmer

I am constantly fiddling with this thing...seems like it can't go 2 days without requiring adjustment. Are they always this picky or is mine just weird? I bought it used on Ebay but replaced the PH just in case (MJ1200). I am always adjusting the air intake knob; too much one way and I get microbubbles all over the tank, too much the other way and I get no foam.

Sounds like you can use a bubble diffuser and that company makes them for their skimmers. Good idea to look into it. In the mean time, try using a piece of sponge at the mouth of the out take (just place it right on top there).

I love their skimmers, but yeah...a bit too tempermental with the bubbles...
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
