so first of all the tank looks great water params are great except alk is a little high 13-14 I have no livestock except snails crabs and a few softies, the only thing i am feeding them right now is reef bugs, and all my corals seem to be doing real well new growth great color etc, but i can not seem to get consistent skimate the skimmer is a css65, which i know alot of people on here dont like but it has been great for me in the past, the drain from the overflow isnt plumbed into the skimmer but it empties right onto the skimmer pump. is my low bioload the reason for little skimate or am i doing something wrong

Probably not enough proteins to skim, are you still cycling? Any algae?

cycle has been over for weeks no algae, so you think i just have nothing to skim?
