Is there something I can put on the return inside the tank to cut down on...

    I've posted on here before about not getting enough bubbles in the skimmer. (css 220) I have cleaned it all out, raised the pump closer to the surface, made the air intake hole a little bigger, and still not enough bubbles. I don't get any foam at all, I have to keep it adjusted so that what...
