seaclone skimmer

so i got one today, and i was just wondering to break it in, should i leave the air valve thing open to let in air which will cause air to flow into the tank, or should i keep it closed, or is the trick to find a happy medium, this is my first skimmer and im not exactly sure on how to set it up properly, any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

I let mine almost completely open and had skimmate by next morning. It was a little runny but evened out after a couple of days. Now skimmate is much darker but much less as well. I have it wide open now.

my micro bubbles went away as I turned it down slowly. If this is a new tank and you put any water conditioners in watch out. They make skimmers foam like crazy

I have a cyclone skimmer also, always have the valve open all the way, it works great, a little noisy but ok.
