I'm running a Sea Clone 100 protein skimmer (I know - not a great skimmer but I'm on a budget and had cheap access to it) in a newly established 60 gallon sw
- inverts and a few small fish.
Took a bit of adjusting - had a ton of micro bubbles in the tank and was getting almost completely clear water in the collection cup - sounds like that's how it should be since not much time for gunk build up. I was told it would take some adjustments and there would be a break-in time.
Question is now I am not getting the micro bubbles in the tank but now nothing is coming into the collection cup. I can see that the bubbles from the venturi are forming at the top of the skimmer below the collection cup but there is nothing bubbling over into the collection cup.
Is this just a sign that my water quality is good and that I just have a fairly light load or are there are other factors I need to check to make sure it is working correctly?
My web queries have done nothing but confuse me further.
Help and advice is greatly appreciated!!
