Oh okay. How do you clean the cup? Do you drag the PVC along with it?

Yes the pvc is very short it doesnt extend past the cap that screws onto the water bottle, creating a cone for the skimmate and foam to travel up. The longest part of your pvc should be in the cup, creating a collection area below the top of the pvc pipe in the collection cup. It takes me two minutes to clean out, just rinse out with tap water and voila !

My 3/4 inch of PVC is too big for the water bottle. How did you fit yours inside ?

Finished my DIY skimmer yesterday and has been running since last night at 9. Hope my skimmate turns out to look like yours. So far I could see some yellow but that's about it. (also the bad fishy smell)
