Recommended Posts

Hi guys, this is my first post and im hoping some of you can help me. My protein skimmer (a Fluval Sea ps2 mini) is barely foaming and I havent had to empty it in a month at least. Ive checked airlines and the water level seems to be fine in it, could there just be nothing to skim? I haven't done a pullout and hose down yet.

Tanks ;D - Joe

I'd make sure there is nothing clogging the airlines all the way to the pump. Not foaming is not working.

it takes about a week for skimmers to get foaming... They need a lil "seasoning"
