    Default Mp10 blowing bubbles?

    WTH? It's blowing bubbles. It's about 4-5" from the surface and it's not sucking from there. So where might they be coming from?

    Are they comming from the skimmer? Usually the only thing in my tank to produce em, or is the mp the actual source of them

    Looks like the Mp10 is actually forcing them. I no longer have a skimmer in my tank so I know that's not it. Maybe from the return but those are on the surface only. I'm not seeing the Mp10 pulling anything from the surface, at all.

    Turn things off one at a time to confirm/isolate the culprit. If you figure out for sure it is the mp-10, try different settings and intensities to see if it improves.

    Well I turned it off and a bunch of bubbles came out from the inside of it....so Chort I'm thinking your right that there was air trapped inside. Let me hope this took care of it.

    Well it still does it. But when I turn it off a bunch of bubbles come flowing out of it. Then it's good again for another couple of days
