Help please 

I have a nanoskim 40 on a aqua 35 nano reef, I seem to be having trouble setting up the skimmer I have tried to adjust the flow and the air intake but cannot seem to get the bubbles to the very top of the neck they sit about 2 inch down, has anyone got any suggestions, it is a new set up around the 8 weeks mark

Is the skimmer new? It may need time to break in and let all that gunk build up before it starts foaming to the top. 

 

My skimmer starts bubbling two inches below the cup when I first clean it. I think just give it some time as it's a new skimmer it sounds like and needs to break in.

Maybe your organics is too low for now. On my IM30 it does the same thing after I do a major water change. Then after a heavy feeding I can see the organics starting to climb up the neck. If that is not it then maybe send an email to the manufacturer and see what they have to say.

Clean it out fully. I have one and after a couple of weeks it needs a deep clean

Pour tank water into the hob filter to fill it up.. it will glug for a few seconds as it starts to pull the water from the tank.
