How Annoying! :x
And, this problem is apparently not just something you alone are dealing with. I don't know how many pictures I've seen of aquariums running, and the water is just about jam-full of those micro-bubbles. The owner of the aquarium is either as stymied by the problem as you are, or has just quit worrying about it and accepted things, 'as is'.
So, I agree with you - fight the bubbles! Some troubleshooting could be in order here!
- Can you get, acquire (purchase?) a different (or even new?) submersible pump to try in your sump? Attempting return flow from the sump to your aquarium with another pump, makes sense actually...
- I would purchase a length of vinyl tubing. This is something you can try as a replacement for the discharge run from the pump on up to the tank.
If application of either of those troubleshooting attempts still yields 'MILLIONS OF MICRO-BUBBLES'? Well, it could be on to the next possible troubleshooting steps we can dream up, as something else that can be attempted to fix this annoying problem. :wink:
