Skimmer - bubbles coming through sponge


I have an ASM g1x Skimmer
small micro bubbles started coming out of the units and introducing air in my 150gal aquarium.....

I am confused struggling

1. I just treated the tank with red slime .... could this affect the amount of bubbles produced in my skimmer?

I couldn't get them to stop so I took it to my LFS where I purchased it
they put it in a sump and it worked fine
brought it home .. set it back up ...
same thing!!!!! arggggggg

Yes red slime remover will make your skimmer go crazy. I always turn mine off or turn the out put way down to keep from overflowing. It will settle down in a couple of days and you can re tune it.
