I have a reef octopus nwb150 and it has been running for over a month to now. For some reason I am getting a wet skim I stead of the slug. I have the skimmer set in between the depths the manufacturer suggests. Any tips on what I should be looking for as far as bubble height or anything?

I used to run an HOB skimmer by Reef Octopus and even after 10 months of use it would skim wet. I went with reef octopus because it got great reviews.
I finally decided to get rid of it and went with sea side aquatics skimmer. Much better design and it uses a sicce syncra pump which is dead silent.
So I say if you can't reach an optimum performance, get a new skimmer and sell yours on eBay or Craigslist like I did. Better cut your losses now and enjoy this hobby to the fullest.
