For sand stirrers I would recommend something like Nassarius snails. They move the sand but do not decimate the sandbed like some stars do. If you are getting that much gunk from a cheap skimmer there must be a lot of organics in your water. Are you using tap water for your topoffs and water changes?

What I really meant to say was that it was skimming and not just producing nothing, my bad

No I switch to RO/DI about two months ago, within that time have done top offs and big water changes using it
