View Full Version : bubbles

01/16/2010, 07:54 PM
I have dual overflows on my 57g. When they run into my sump, I get major bubbles that create a huge foam head in my sump. Any idea why

Its "acting" like a protein skimmer.

Try putting a filter sock in there to ileviate some of the bubbles

I did dose maracin the week of xmas, and have done 15g water change since then, but I can't get my skimmer to stop foaming either, which just adds to my foam issue

Yeah its the maricin that stuff foams forever. I would suggest removing the medication with carbon or even better polyfilter.

I am in Ft Wayne also!

Awesome... I picked up some chemi pure tonight as well as another 10g for another water change... I am trying to get a wrasse out of my tank as well... its a blast...

Did you know about the local reef club?

No I am pretty antisocial not much of a club guy. However my colonies are getting a lot of branches I need to do some trading... I have way too much brown hammer coral and blue mushrooms... I need to find a club and do some swapping...

do you think that the extra 10g and teh chemi pure will do the trick?
