Protein Skimmer Adjustment

Ok someone gave me their old SeaClone and I have it going now. My question is, how much air do I want? Right now, there are alot of little bubbles coming out of the skimmer. I assume this means there is too much air. I just need to know what the adjustment should be.

ON the air valve, just open it 3/4 of a full turn and let it run. It will have to "break in" before the micro bubbles will go away. I have mine set at 3/4 turn and it makes 1/2 cup of coffee a day.
