Not sure I can help with the bubbles, I get some in my drain as well! As for particles suspended in water I have a foam piece on my mp10 that does a good job of collecting most of that!

I'm not understanding the problem. Bubbles are leaving your filter sock and returning to the DT?

No bubbles make it back to the dt. I have a bubble trap in the sump. But the but the overflow pipe bubbles so much in filter sock it floats my filter sock and the bubble carry all the nasty stuff out of the sock and into the sump.

Well quick update. Things are going well. Both clowns are doing very well. My shrimp are loving life and all my parameters are in check. I think it's time for some coral! I may go this weekend to asr and pick up my first zoa!

Went to asr yesterday and got myself my first coral. I picked up a radioactive zoa! In this picture they aren't fully out yet.

I love that morph, unfortunately they don't seem to like me I've had 3 10+ polyp frags melt away on me for no reason. Good luck

Longest was about 3 months and it was about 20-25 heads when it started and was in between some Rastas and scrambled eggs that thrived the other 2 lasted about a month. Every tank is different though, I'm sure yours will be fine
