    a strategically placed sponge should cure that, but remember to clean it every couple of days, it could be coming from the skimmer outlet, so a filter sock may be better.

    Without knowing your system, it's difficult to say, but the filter sock would be placed where the skimmer outlet would fall in it, a sponge could be placed to prevent the micro bubbles entering the return pump section of your sump.
