How old is the tank? New tanks won't have much in the way of organics to remove.

Skimmer can take up to a week or two to "break in" and begin skimming. You should also check to make sure you have enough air being injected into the skimmer. If there is a valve, open it up all the way and see if you get a wet foam filling the cup (be ready to turn the air flow down immediately) and make small adjustments, giving an hour or so between adjustments for it to take effect in the skimmer.
