New AquaClear w/bypass and air bubble
I just set up a new AquaClear 70; there's an air bubble in the u-tube and some water is flowing around the intake. I've tried to dislodge the bubble to no avail. I assume these two things are related.
I wonder if I have too much media or it's too tightly packed; I have (top to bottom): Foam block, carbon, filter floss wrapped around crushed coral. It's a snail tank, thus the coral, and there was some question of there being a contaminant in the tank, thus the carbon.
Will the bubble work itself out, or any idears what to do to eliminate it? I'd usually just let it run and see what happened, but I'm leaving overnight in a few hours....
