    Question Micro Bubbles - Good or Bad?

    After a year of breaking in my Remora is still spitting out Microbubbles.

    Mind you, I haven't cleaned it since I bought it therefore would this contribute to excess Microbubbles.

    Also, other than being a little unsightly, are the bubbles bad for corals and fish?

    Thanks

    BAD if you have corals in the tank. BAD for viewing the fish and the tank. GOOD for adding O2 in a pinch

    The micro bubble irritate them. It may not kill them directly but will have an adverse effect on them and we have enough trouble keeping them happy and healthy already.
