Try setting the skim to get a wetter skim. Move it higher you get dryer skim, lower you get wetter skim. My nitrates are lower and still have gunk come out of the water. A skimmer skims out the microscopic material and helps reduce your nitrate levels and fish waste that woulda turned into ammonia/nitrite/nitrate. If your nitrates are that low, don't worry so much. Your aquarium is probably understocked so you don't get much skim

Hey Gboy not sure if this will help but I have the same issues with my BC29. My skimmer(Tunze9002) is in the back chamber(2) and sometimes it skims well and other times it doesn't. Sometimes gunk builds up on the cone coming into the cup and it's easier the the skim to raise up and bubble into the cup. Other times it just seems the water is too clean. Of your getting bubbles and you can hear it I wouldn't worry about it.

Mine does that all the time. Some days it's a dry skim other days a wet skim. I attribute this to water changes and clean water.

Not sure if this helps you or not but wanted you to know your not alone.

Good luck.
