Will these bubbles eventually go away once the water is 'conditioned'?
I have a new 44g tank I set up last weekend w/ a aerator and a Fluval 305 w/ the output on the opposite side of the tank from the aerator. I added some API Tap Water Conditioner day 1 and some SeaChem Flourish day 2 for some plants that I put in there. The bubbles from the aerator, instead of popping when they reach the surface, just get blown around once they circulate over to the filter output, clouding the water much like in the OP's pic from the first post. If I turn off the aerator, it clears up after a bit, but I really don't want to do that. I don't mind turning the aerator down, but I just feel that the bubbles should pop when they reach the surface.
