hi everyone..i have a no-name skimmer that came with no instructions. i'm using it in a 65g tank with a 20g sump/refuge with 75lbs of LR
. here is a picture of it http://www.aqua-macro.com/skimmer/sk...roduct-004.htm
i've never used a skimmer before, so i have some q's. how much skimmate should this be producing? the first day i ran this skimmer, i produced 1 cup in about 1 hour...mostly liquid. production has slowly dropped off to about 1 inch of liquid per day.
I then started to fool with the knob on the return, and saw that it adjusts the foam level in the riser. where should i have the level of foam to be most effective?
also, when i first plug the skimmer in, the bubbles always rush up the riser and about an inch of liquid spills over into the cup...production then slows down and i always have to adjust it...is this normal?
should i just set it while the skimmer is running and then leave it, even on startup? or does it always need adjusting?
