It might not be high enough. Is it at the reccomended level? Also is it.new because skimmers have a break in period. Lastly is it adjustable cause it could need a little fine tuning?

My skimmer sits a little low so I put some of my tubing under the edge of it to raise it up (the thick kind you use to siphon stuff out). That way if it were to fall in it can't clog anything or harm my fish.
