yes I would say between bottom of the cup and halfway up is where the water line should be, then you should see bubbles rising up and slowly over the edge once in the aquarium for a little while

you basically want it so its bubbling over, but not so much that the cup has to be emptied every few hours kinda thing...

micro bubbles are common durring the "break in period" It will take some time to get the skimmer adjusted properly. So just keep an eye on it

Go down to your lfs. Odds are they have one running and if the owner is a good businessperson, he/she will be happy to show you how to operate one.

Here you go here is one of where my bubble line is, right where it starts to get skinny, and one of the froth collected, this is after a couple of days i believe.

PERFECT thank you. We got an air valve to adjust it but it is not a good quality one I just got a better quality air valve so I can get a more accurate amount of air I was getting way too much air (thank goodness I am in a sump).

Hubby says, Thank you Thank you Thank you. the pics are perfect.
