My wet dry filter has a built in skimmer, I know these aren't very efficient but I'd like to set it up until I buy a good one. The thing is that I'm not familiar with skimmers so I don't know if it's complete and what I need to get it start it and how to set it up! Heres a couple of pictures of what it looks like. I'll appreciate anyone's help!!

You need a maxijet 1200 to go into that black pipe portion. The maxijet needs the air hose portion to come out of the pump to make microbubbles. You need a lid that slightly restricts airflow so a foam head can form and not push up too easily.
