RSM 34G Skimmer Problem
Hi all -
I have not posted much on the forum, but I do a lot of my research here. I have a question that I hope to get some insight on below:
Tank - Red Sea Max 34G
Problem - Bubbles coming out of return when protein skimmer is on
Dosing with red slime remover
Tank is ~ 3 months old
Checked seating of skimmer and made sure that the skimmer foam box is on solid
Research I have done suggests that the red slime remover can react funny in the skimmer chamber and cause excess bubbles
Anyone care to take a stab at this one? All advice is appreciated.
FYI - water chemistry is close to perfect ... .25 - .5ppm ammonia, ph 8.3, nitrate 0, nitrite 0 ... added a PhosZorb pad and a Purigen pad.
