Here is what I am getting in exactly 1-week from my stock Octo NW150 on my 75-gallon tank. I think I may be running it a little wet??? Can anybody explain the benefits or running dry vs. wet or vice versa? Thanks

That looks.......really good. It might be a little wet, but the color looks good.
When you skim drier, you are just giving the water a little more time to react with the bubbles and the skimmate is a little darker. Really not much difference when you are pulling out crap like that tho.
Pretty good for a skimmer that's less than $200.
