What happened to my skimmer?
It just stopped producing bubbles. It used to froth and foam and now it just produces microbubbles that don't get more than a micron thick at the surface of the water.
The skimmer is the in-sump venturi-style model that came in my wet/dry.
I'd like to get it up and running long enough to feel better about my tank while I'm replacing it. I guess people run skimmerless but it has me a little freaked out...
It doesn't improve at all if I completely remove the "valve" at the end of the airline. It didn't help when I took the tube and collection cup out and cleaned them, either. I'm not sure what else to try in order to get it functional again.
