    Okay, so my question is, how bad are normal bubbles getting into the tank. Wouldn't it be beneficial to run any airstone in sump to increase oxygenation, not necessary aiming for micro bubbles ?

    Anybody tried this yet. Im gonna try it the weekend.

    Limewood airstone & at the back where my return pump is.

    Bubble can irritate corals if the too big yes, so hopefully running it in the return pump chamber the big bubbles would go up & the nannos get sucked in.

    i actually saw an article last week on the internet---they call it bubble scrubbing.
    i have already purchased my wooden airstone to do this.

    I've used this method before when i had a bad case of dino....the bubbles do help dislodge the slime so you can remove it easily. However...some of my sps did not like it at all....even with the tiniest of bubbles....
