Octopus BH100F Problems

I bought an Octopus Skimmer BH100F about two weeks ago, it is working fine and I love it... but the only problem I have is that in the past 3 days, when I come home from work, the collection cup is filled up with yellowish water (not that dirty), not like before that it was pulling dark stuff.... How can I fix this? what am I doing wrong???

I don't know to much about a Octopus Skimmer BH100F, but I believe that your water level is to high. Try lowering it a bit until you get the correct skimmate.
