I agree..but it was literally mud! I had to use a wire brush to get it off. Should i be going for more of a wet skim?

God it was smelly..and those wire brushes have a tendancy to fling the stuff back at you...lol ew

Right on! That's how I ldo it. The wire brushes can slightly scratch the reaction chamber over time and make it harder for the skimate to move up into the cup and cause the nasty gunk to build up even faster.

That was such a thoughtful gift! Whoever your secret Santa was knew how much you loved that crab. And do I really have to ask for pictures?
