About 3-4 weeks ago i added Melafix to my tank and as before when you
turn the skimmer it makes it overflow and skim very water. i have done
2 water changes over the last 3 weeks and today it's still overflowing.

Should i just let it overflow back inot the sump? need help

I would not, are you using GAC? If not try that.

What skimmer do you have? Can you change it so that it runs drier and won't overflow as quickly?

Todd - Are all of your pictures of things in your 3 tanks? Or is some just stuff you like? Amazing amount of animals for 3 small tanks! Great looking stuff.

I suggest run carbon as well. I believe most reefers do any more.
