I'm thinking my issue stems from my pump and that it might need cleaned weekly. No clue why. I don't clean my collection cup unless I'm cleaning the whole unit.

See i cant stand the dirty collection cup. Actually
Ill upload a photo of the skimmate before i dump it. I just cleaned it 5 days ago. Ill be getting the auto neck scrubber at some point. What skimmer is it? I cant imagine a skimmer pump needing disassembled every week. Youd break the ceramic shaft pretty quickly

Reef Octopus NSB150. I've thought something was wrong with the pump since I got it.

One thing I need to do is shut down the sump and clean it. Still gunk in there from when I was 'filter sock'-less. I still firmly believe pantyhose are a life saver.

i need to do something. I'm hovering at 40-60 treated and idk. Good news is 1) I finally updated to ios7 2) I created a photbucket account 3) I broke down the entire skimmer 4) now it's squeaky clean!! Only thing I noticed is that the sp2000 pump impeller has a completely exposed magnet.... Idk how I feel about that
