Ok sounds good, I just started it so im going to see how it's going and then 2mm I'll adjust of anything, right now what its doing is the bubbles are at the top and barely coming into the cup so I guess that sounds good.

Mines hooked up to an external collection cup, but I would think once or twice a week at most. If its not a really wet skim.

Yeah, that's too wet a skim! Just turn it back a little.

I empty my skimmer cups every other day or so and I get a nasty thick skim from my tanks. As your skimmer breaks in more and the tank stabilizes you will be able to really fine tune the skimmer to get what you want out of it.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
