Who, what when, and where? What bubbles? Are they in the return from the sump? Is the sump loaded with them? Is it from the tank itself? Take a look at the trap Steve made for his sump just before the return pump. A very standard set up.
see i tried to take a pic the little bits of dust in the water, that them.
The bubbles are coming from the sump return and they are in the sump. Is this normal? And what kind of sponge do you put in the bubble trap?
mike are you sure? the bubbles dont seem to have that much bouncy? It takes about 5 minutes for the bubbles in my tank to go to the surface after the pump is turned off. What im saying is that i think even the gentalist flow will bring the bubles down.
You can mock it up with some tight fitting plastic or whatever. The gap between them should be about 1/2". The skimmer side should be about 1" above the bottom and the pump side should be 1" lower then the top of the skimmer side plate. the top of the skimmer side plate should be the depth of the sump, what ever you want it to be.
