    I purchased a new bh 1000 skimmer. Have it set up correct I believe. Foaming nicely.
    But the micro bubbles are insane. Been up for maybe a week.
    I understand this is common but to the extent that my fish are skiddish and corals are not very happy. It also does not seem to be changing at all as far as amount of micro bubbles.

    Anyone have any experience with these reef octo skimmers?

    Also any way to stop the loud slurping?

    I think a separate compartment is the usual fix for bubbles.
