I used the Red Slime remover and skimmed and I didn't get much at all. I did see an increase but, I started skimming lond before I used the Red Slime remover. Cleaning the skimmer completely is going to cause it to work harder also. It is the slime buildup on the inside that causes the skimmer to work properly.
Red Slime remover is a wonderful product and I didn't use the recommended amount for fear that since it is an antibiotic, I didn't want to hurt the LR
and Inverts. I know it says it won' thurt them but, for all intensive purposes, I should not have had to use it in the first place.. I did, and all of the Red Slime is gone and I used half the dose. It was quick too.
Good luck on finding the skimming solution..
