In the mean time, I would put the lid on and see how it does as it is. If you find the foam filling the cup up and coming out the vent holes then close the wedge pipe ever so slightly. It won't take much but a fraction of a turn. That heavy foam is an indicator or plenty of DOC's. It's looking good though. Much better foam than the videos I saw with it at the high pump speed.

There are PLENTY of DOC's in the tank. I know it's a lite load in there but it's been semi skimmer less for awhile.
