Cleaning a Remora Pro.

This is probably a dumb question. But those of you that have a remora, or remora pro, how do you go about cleaning the collection cup? What I mean is do you unplug the skimmer before you remove the cup, or just leave it running. I have been turning it off and restarting it, but it seems like when i restart it, it gets very noisy for a while and a million microbubbles go into the tank. I read the instructions that came with the remora but it doesn't mention turning it off or not.

Thanks for any help.

I leave it running, unless I am doing something else in the water that's gonna make the skimmer go ballistic, then I leave it turned off for a few hours.

Leave it running. A child size toothbrush is the best thing I've found to clean the cup with. You'll also want to remove the injector plug about once a month and clean the injector. You should have received a brush for this purpose with the skimmer.
