once your skimmer starts working your water should clear up

took me a few weeks to get my skimmer dialed in right
close your air intake fully run like that a day than slowly open it till it starts to foam a little let it run like that a hour or so than open it a little more till its working to your satisfaction
its called patients once you get it dialed in you will know it
I can adjust mine blind folded now I listen for that little fizz sound in the intake

if you have enough live rock you can
I have my hob filter on it but it has no filter media in it I just have it filled with cheato to cut nitrates down and I maintain a steady 1 ppm with my nitrates it also houses pods like a small fuge
