Thank you so much for your response.
So I've gone ahead and made what I think were the correct adjustments that you suggested to do, correct?? I've uploaded some new pics....
I've been watching it for approx 5minutes and its stayed at that level, bubbles are very vigorous but as you stated that could be because of my water change, and I've actually not long done a massive one because I had to make changes to my overflow system.
I feel like my waste cup water level shouldn't be that high? With my old MCE skimmer I never had that, although this version is much more progressive. I'm still yet to pull out some real real gunk... Maybe you'll nail it for me lol. This is definitely now running differently to how it was.
