I am not kidding, I can sit for hours just watching the bubbles go up the tube after my tank lights go off. I even bought a moonlight to light up the turbofloater on my bedroom tank so I can stare at it when I am going to sleep.

Any one else have this problem?

No. air is mixed in a chamber and there is only one direction for it to go, up. Needless to say that since it is static, it is going to cause the smallest particles to adhere to it. Which in turn will be carried up and out. Take some of your hair and a ballon full of helium. Rub your hair against the ballon and let it go. Same thing as a skimmer.

If you mean the hypnotics of it, then yes. I can stare at my tank for god knows how long just watching a single zoo do nothing.

I stare at my skimmer endlessly! I love it! I think I sometimes like to look at all the equipment and plumbing more than the critters...but Im not normal...

Skimmers and toilets are mesmerizing (smile) ---- so are washing machines with clear doors, lava lamps and ants!

I need to get the 6" uplift tube for my MR2 so I have more room for my bubbles to climb :drool:

*Sigh* Currently in the process of getting my new EV-240 skimmer to dial in. I will be spending plenty of hours staring at mine since we are trying to get it consistent while fighting to get my sump working correctly. Did finally figure out that shortening the return lines to just above water level will get rid of the microbubble mania in the main tank:doh:

At least everything else works wonderfully other than having to rewrap with tape and epoxy every connection after in operation for 48hours...:angry:
