    Great trick... Just a question, there a reason why you skimming so wet? The water looks almost clear?

    Well, i normally dont cycle with the skimmer on and even if the skimmer skims must be dark, maybe try and adjust it a little, they use suction cups on the side, see if you can adjust a little higher. Best is to adjust once you have stock in the tank just my 2c
