the rubber band on the collection cup is holding it in place. you can raise and lower the cup to adjust it.

Right, I have the rubberband all the way at the top. So I guess its at max skimming.

i have the aqua c urchin and i love mine. I believe its similar to the remora. if there is nothing to skim it will still skim just a lot less. I am sure there are way better skimmers out there but less maintenance with decent production is better for me.

When production decreases i open the injector screw and clean out the inside. However, I dont think this is your problem. might just not be anything to skim

There is really nothing to mess with besides the cup height. It really is a plug and play skimmer.

I kind of had that idea but I wasn't sure. Thanks again for the help.

But didn't you say...

It's set at the factory setting with half of the cup exposed
If half the cup is exposed, the rubberband isn't all the way at the top, so I'm kinda confused.

If the cup is down as far as it can go, you won't be able to see much of the cup at all.

What I meant to say was when it was installed straight out of the box the rubberband was nearly at the top. I waited for a couple days, didn't see any waste so I moved it closer to the top without making it fall off. Now the cup is barely visible, but its connected to a drain fitting and there barely isn't anything in my waste container either.

I gues you can test to see if it is working by overfeeding for a few days straight. It really will increase production but i highly do not recomend doing that. Just a thought.
