No more microbubbles yay!

mayja ‐ How did you defeat the micro bubbles?
viralentity ‐ Two ways - by running the overflow in the back of the tank the water level is quite high so the pumps are always submerged. This also means that the water is at least 2 inches above the last baffle in the back of the RSM, so any bubbles created in the rear compartment arent sucked into the last chamber and into the pumps.

I may still modify the two RSM pumps by adding a 5 inch piece of 5/8inch tubing to the intakes. Apparently a zip tie is then required to hold the intake onto the pump due to the weight of the added pipe. I might even make it longer so that gunk never settles on the floor of the last chamber, as it is a pain to remove at the best of times.
