Every time i turn on my canisters little air bubbles come out of the spray bar. I took the top off of them to try and get the air out but the little bubbles keep coming. It is very frustrating. What should I do?

How long did you let it run? I've heard it can take some time for all the air to purge from a canister filter. You may just need to let it run a few days. Some people say that rocking their canister back and forth gently can help get some of the air out.

If the canister still spews bubbles after days (or weeks) of operation, then I'm not sure what to suggest, other than make sure you don't have an airstone near the canister intake ;) -- Sorry!
