My skimmer has been switched off for four days now and the dinos don't care.
Seven days usually counts for a full cup of skimmate.

Some months ago I had poured the content of my skimmer back into the tank and it was all back in the skimmer within 2 hours.
Today I turned it on for two hours and there was hardly anything in there even though the water had gotten clear.

In my book this means that the marine snow / debris is formed quite fast and the nutrients get bound in there.
I used a powerhead on my rocks and there was much more debris there than I thought there would be.
