Once you stick your hands in the tank and move stuff around, you can throw off skimmate production for a bit. Same thing with feeding or adding new stuff to the tank. This problem is particularly apparent on new skimmers.
You made a whole bunch of changes in a short ammount of time, fairly normal that your skimmer production would be affected, even for a day or two. You skimmer will take about another week or maybe two to be fully broken in. Just sit tight and stop changing stuff for a while it will all start working again. The less you stick your hands in the tank, touching tank items, or add new things, the faster the skimmer will start working. Seriously, almost everyone goes through this with the first skimmer. Everyone wants to try to help the skimmer start working instead of waiting, and the actions they take usually just make it worse. Think of it as an initiation that requires only patience
The best thing that ever happened to me when I got the first skimmer was that work sent me out of town for four days. When I got back, I had ton of skimmate.
