View Full Version : Skimmer Funckshun..?

So I have noticed that my skimmer has been collecting a lay of stuff...(I think on the bubble plate) Should i clean this out or is my skimmer not dialed in right..? This should be going into my collection cup right..?

Alot of skimmers get debris built up in them over time. Diatoms growing in them, algae, coralline etc.
just break it down and clean it. If you have a filter sock in front of it, it helps keep the skimmer cleaner longer!

Thats what I thought...but wasn't sure if it affected its performance. I took my filter sock out and put in 2 sections of filter pad...just down from the skimmer. Thanks for the info meshwheel.
