Hey guys

This skimmate doesnt look dark enough, any suggestions. Im running a tunze 9002 skimmer on my tl550. Or is this skimmate normal"?will it work if I move the skimmer to the first chamber and the filter floss to the 2nd chamber? its currently in the 2nd chamber and filter floss in the 1st from left.

this is a weeks skimmate.

You can raise the skimmer a little.

Current tank - Radion lit Solana 34

 

Future  tank - Deep Blue 60 Cube

Just raise the collection cup if you want it to skim "dry", you are skimming "wet" now, which basically means that there's just slightly more water being collected.
