The water level in the sump might be to high for the skimmer . Is there anyway you can make a platform to raise it up?

Did you go with the psk150? I can go find out how high the water level should be.

Conditioner? What kind?

AS far as tuning the skimmer start with matching up the white dot to the mark. Then I just turn. Clockwise gives you less foam and counter clockwise means the foam will go further up. I can probably take a picture for you if you like.

Cool, it was hard to tell how much exactly I took out because I didn't keep track, lol. Well, it looks like tomorrow I will be adding new SW.

When can I add my two fish from my 55g to this tank?

When the SG stabilizes from the new SW and when your ammo goes to nitrates within 24hrs you're good
