Thank the heavens!! It has stopped for the time being. I can't for the life of me figure it out. I'm gonna try that mod and see if that helps.

Also... Should the skimmer be really really bubbling? Or should it be going about half way up the tube and just be dumping some foam over the top and not water? It was set fine for a while then it just went haywire. Maybe the water change? I dunno... At least all I hear is a nice calm trickle of water. Ah.....

WOW!! inTank got right back to me twice!! Answered all my questions and assured me there is no issue. Told me to just leave it be and let it break in and of still having an issue they gave me step by step instructions on what to do and if that didn't work they gave me a tech name, email and phone number from Tunze that will assist me.

inTank is GREAT and has amazing customer service. I WILL be using them again and highly recommend them to others who are looking to trick out there nano cubes.

Glad inTank helped you. I agree about the break-in of the skimmer. The mod is easy and gives you more control of the bubbles.

For a dry skimmate = bubbles pop right at the top. Which allows the skim to carrry the junk up and then pops and it goes out.

Wet skimmate = allowing the bubbles to just over flow into cup.

I run mine a little dry but still allow small amounts of bubbles to over flow out. Its up to you which works best for your setup.

Thanks for the info. Also today I'll be doing that mod. Just going to get the valve.

Nice! It really gives you a lot more air and control. Is it quieter?

Yes much quieter!! And the ease of control is awesome. You don't have to take the upgraded inTank top off. Before the upgraded cup you see in the pic hindered you from adjusting the skimmer without taking it off. Now I can leave the cup on and adjust it the right way and actually see how high the bubbles are getting.

Before was just a HUGE pain!!

Thanks for helping me!
