I have the same skimmer for a 46 gal
as well. You need to make sure the air plug is on the the second plug "II". Aslo the waterflow intake is very delicate.
When your adjusting it you have to keep an eye on it for about a min or two and watch that the water level is in the cylinder ring. Wait about 20 mins or so and if there is alot of water in the collection cup you will then need to adjust the inflow again.
I marked a line w/ a red permanent market to make things a little easier when i'm doing regular maintenance on the tank.
Hope this helps.
