Skimmer Overflowed

Hello,

tonight the water in my sump rose, and my protein skimmer couldn't stop bubbling over. It was a fairly good mount of time before I noticed. Do you forsee a problem occurring because of this?

By the way, the sump isn't plugged back in yet.

I have overflowed my skimmer a few times due to a finicky skimmer. I reset it and it just skimmed everything back out. No detrimental effects that I could see.

Mines did the same after changing the water level in my sump/refugium. Fixed the water level back to the way I had it before and left my skimmer of for a day . I don't have much in my tank so it wasn't a big deal leaving it off for a day. And now it's back to normal .
