If your not using a sump with baffles then you may get micro bubbles, filter socks can also help eliminate micro bubbles.

Figure out if they are particles or microbubbles and where they are coming from. Filter socks will get the particles out, put it on the input to your sump. A baffle may get micro bubbles out, a baffle with a sponge at the beginning will help even more.
