During a break in period how do you set the skimmer? i have an adjustable skimmer, a coralife one i think but it has never worked quite right. Im wondering if it never really broke in.

It's adjustable with the air intake and then how much water it returns.
As far as describing the air intake I couldn't do but I have the return full open.
It's starting to work now but the foam doesn't stay at the top. It's constantly rising and falling. Plus it's crazy loud.

Let me ask you guys something since we are on the subject of skimmers. I don't have a lot of room Hight wise under my tank. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend me a good preforming skimmer that is not that Tall. I need to take measurements when I get home so I can let you know just what I am working with. But It is a 110g tank.
