    hi Guys, i need a little advise on something. i added some Herbtana to my tank but i had the PS off for that period but now ive switched it back on and it just keeps blowing fine bubbles into the tank, its been like that for 2 days now. i have a Boyu skimmer. (i know need to upgrade it but finances is a little short)

    is it throwing the bubbles out the suction side of the Skimmer?

    If I remember you need to do a biggish water Change after the required period according to bottle. That should help a little.
