    Howsit guys. Recently bought a Juwel300 tank. Im running a Juwel filter (in the water), a hang on skimmer (having issues with it) as well as a powerhead and wavemaker. My tank has been cycling for about 3 days now. My ammonia levels are at 0.4 I've also got 40kg LV. I added Aquaria super nitrifying bacteria and kalkwasser.

    Heres some pictures of my setup

    I've been having a bit of a problem with my skimmer. The return water has way too many bubbles coming out. Im not too sure what skimmer this is because it came with the tank which was bought 2nd hand. I do know that its a macro skimmer.

    You can see the bubbles above

    Hi Juwel make a nice piece of kit. Not sure about your skimmer but I bought the reef Octo BH1000 that came with a sponge that fits over the inlet and that seemed to solve a lot of the bubble problems I was having
