ya bro.. many many bubbles and air will be trapped in pores of media.. pores in the sponge.. and many nooks and crannies.. mine took 2-3days to clear.. lol.. i think what fluval says about the problems is not when u just set up ba.. but if u set up for quite some time and suddenly got micro bubbles then maybe is the problems that they stated.. i would leave it and monitor a few more days.. cos if u open up the canister again, new air would get trapped inside..

bro.. glad the micro bubbles issue is resolved.. keep fish must relax, dun stress yourself..

the cloudy part could be due to bacteria boom in ur new tank or it could be high bio-load.. and normally if u disturb your medias or use new medias, it will take time for the particles to settle down..

the orginal spoonge for FX-5 is gd enough.. 3 trays of sponge filtration

true bro.. hmm.. the sponge provided just by looks is not as fine as sera filter wool though.. or rather, not even near the fineness of sera filter wool.. shall give it more time.
