It sounds to me that your skimmer is indeed working just fine. From the size of your cup, it should take about two days or so for a very dark liquid to collect about one inch high in the cup (Maybe to where that black nipple that you have on the side which is for attaching a tube that goes to a canister in case you won't be able to empty the collection cup as often as you'd should.) It is kind of slow, or at least it seems that way. That liquid is very concentrated with polutants so even though it seems slow, it is effectively working for you.

Something's gotta go wrong cause I'm feeling way too **** good.
