It should stick out of the water about 1/4 inch. Can't you replace the short piece?

You mean using the clear plastic tube instead of the one that's on the elbow that comes into the box?

I've got the same skimmer in my sump. Took 3 full days to break in. I don't use the bubble trap anymore. The valve between the pump and elbow I have set to about 7/8 open maybe a touch less. I found out that if you cut it back to half you'll get very little air suction. I'll adjust the start of micro bubble about 1 inch above the red ring that holds the collection cup maybe 3/4 on an inch. Keep the red knob all the way open and wait a day then adjust the red knob to the type of skim you want. I sometimes get a cup of dark stuff a day or two. It's on a 75 reef med bio load with 29 gallon sump. Aquac ev-180 will be in Wednesday woo hoo!

I'd take pics but I'm on day 2 of a Pimafix med and insane bubbles.

The long piece goes from pump to elbow in a in-sump configuration. Short piece goes from valve attached to pump to elbow

If its for the air it doesn't matter but if it's hanging then no

This is how I shut it off the other day. I didn't make any adjustments for at least 3 weeks
