    Hi to all,

    I have a Boyu skimmer that came with my TL450.

    I have spent a lot of time fiddling and adjusting the skimmer, but I'm not sure it's actually working the way it should. It is at least foaming a lot more than previously, but the foam does not seem to run over into the cup.
    The tank is only 5 days old and only contains water and sand. LR to follow in 2 days time.

    Herewith the pics of the skimmer in action. Am I perhaps just being paranoid about this, or can someone suggest a way to improve the skimmer operation? :p

    i dont think its gonna pull anything out if there is nothing to skim. Also you have to give new skimmers some time to break in. Give it a few days

    your tank is still to new, maybe something after you have added the LR.

    Thanks for the feedback guys,

    Yip, I thought it may be a bit premature for the skimmer to be working full tilt, but I just wanted to check.
