    Ok, so i have millions of micro bubbles in my display and it irretating looking at my tank and just see small bubbles... So i done some research and to get rid of it I must build a bubble trap in my sump... Right i know how to build it, but where should it be... The first glass pane or last glass pane?

    Thanks
    Jason

    Hi Jason,

    It depends on where the bubbles originate from Jason. Where does it?

    create an extra baffle between your DSB and return or create a baffle in your last chamber,otherwise raise the water level in your return chamber

    add a ballvalve to the outlet pipe and reduce the flow.this way the water level in the overflow will rise and help out.this is what i did on my new system as i have no Durso
