aqua c remora pro not skimming.....

hey there, i just put an aqua c remra pro w/ mag drive 3 pump in my 90 gal about two weeks ago, at first it was working fine (too good actually), but two days ago it kinda lost its power, it started making a loud noise, and the water flow was very weak, i just rinsed the intake foam and looks like the water flow got a little stronger but not like the way it should be, the collection cup collects water but no too many suds. can anyone advise? (sorry for the long post!

Loud noise... like coming from the pump, or coming from the spray chamber of the skimmer itself?

Perhaps it skimmed everything there was to skim? Mine (remora pro/mag3) comes and goes as far as skimmate production. And it's always skimmed very very wet.

They're all the same. I think technically it's a "Danner Supreme Mag3". And the same group that makes them makes Pondmaster pumps also.
