Air stones are helpful, as is lowering the water line a bit so your power filter disturbs the surface more.
Sorry I just can't share this experience. In all the dozen set ups I had plenty of BB developing, some short term some long, some even in tanks with super sensitive fish and I just didn't have this kinda problem; not even now in the 55g that's been blooming for about 6 weeks
