How do you skim?

Wasn't sure if this belonged in the site polls or not. Feel free to move.

Just curious how everyone out there skims their tanks? If you have a reef and FOWLR, vote on what you do for each tank.

Interesting results so far. I predicted a lot more differentiation between the two.

I skim wet cause if i get in the habit of cleaning my cup every day I will. I skim as wet as I can and dump about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of skimate everyday in with my OCT-1000 on my 55 gal.
