    Ok, on the tool bar at the top there is an Image uploader button, hit that, it will scroll down with three choices, hit browse, it will take you to your puter docs/pics , choose you piccy and hit upload, if it loads (not too big) then simply copy and paste the piccy of struggles tank[IMG] into the reply box.

    If it fails to load, it is too big, in that case go to all prgrammes by hitting the start button on your puter, then go to accessories, then Paint, hit file, hit open in the drop down box, choose your pic, then hit stretch and skew and reduce both horizontal and vertical by 50% and try again.

    Your skimmer looks like a Via Aqua SK200 - Does it have a square base?

    That's the one, it's either an SK200 or SK400, the SK400 is simply bigger than the SK200. Not the best of skimmers but they do perform rather average.

    Why do you want to adjust it, what is it doing or not doing?

    The skimmer looks like a Via aqua SK 388 to me.I had one of those,not the best of skimmers sadly but it does the job. These skimmers work best when raised, water level should be about 5 cm above the pump. Try and keep the water level inside the skimmer about half way up the cup,keeping in mind that the black knob is open fully so that you hear that air sucking in.Try it out :)
