This isn't from the water filter, it's from the air pump/bubble stone. I'm certain because I just put the stone in yesterday and prior to it, there were no bubbles like this. (Another point that may or may not be important is there aren't any fish in here yet.) My old pump wasn't pushing enough power to put any bubbles out of the stone so I bought a new pump and stone. I want bubbles all across the back but can't seem to find a stone long enough. I'd also like to ask if someone might know why with a pump for 30-60 gallons and an 18" stone there aren't as many bubbles at the farthest end of the stone (away from the tubing) as in the beginning. The pump should be sufficient and we've always had this problem. (Course we've always used the same kind of pump too. Hmmm) It's like it can't push the air that far? So I'm guessing as long as the bubbles don't overflow, there's no real guideline to go by?
