    Hi Gus, what is the best height for the stock Nanocube protein skimmer to be out of the water ? I am not sure as I don't have a lot of skimmate and I'm not sure if it is set up correctly.

    Too low and its easy to flood the skimmer cup.

    As high as possible but the lid still needs to close.

    Hi Riaan, that's awesome thanks, I don't have a lid on my cube so can play with the skimmer height quite a bit. I'll maybe put it as low as it can go and then slowly raise it so it doesn't wet skim ?
