Well skimmers have a break in period so it won't be consistent at all for the first couple weeks so I wouldn't even worry about the fine tuning until your close to adding life to the tank.

okay so when i woke up this morning i noticed my return chamber was low on water.. so i checked for leaks but nothing was found. i added about 3 cups of RO water just to get me by til i got home...

well when i got home, the level was back where it was this morning, maybe even lower... no leaks from the tank/plumbing/sump. Any ideas where the water is going? my Skimmer wasnt near full either..

on the bright side.. just picked up a Koralia Evo 1400 powerhead from my LFS

Could be evap. I got through about 6 gallons a week or close to a gallon a day on my 46 with 20 sump both open top. It's gone up by about a gallon a week since I started running the furnace too.

Do you know the dimensions of your return chamber or how many gallons it holds? You may have to get an ATO if you don't wanna top off daily
