I have a CPR bak on the back of my 90 and I am curious is it better to just attach a maxi jet 1200 instead of the rio 600 it came with since it seems to be pouring out a few extra bubbles after I just went and bought a bubble trap which seems to have done the job. Or is it just really something I am going to be unable to do in the long run regardless there are going to be bubbles that go into the tank.

my best advice is to sell the bakpak and get a skimmer that can actually handle a 90g.
I use hot rodded bakpak skimmers on 10-20g, that's about it....

if you cant afford an expensive sump and skimmer, you should seriously look at a super cheap rubbermaid container or used glass tank as a sump to house an inexpensive skimmer big enough to clean your system, as well as a refugium and place for inexpensive media reactors.

this skimmer would be like 5 times more powerful than what you have now:
