Got one similar to that and never got it to get a nice dark skimmate. Always watery. Good luck buddy.

There is normally a water level guide printed on the clear outer riser tube, but it wears off quite easily so you may have to look closely.

Looks to me like you may have the skimmer a bit on the shallow side, why not drop it a cm or 2?

Incidently, some people have had success modifying the intake for these system-style skimmers. If you feel like it, you can drill a hole through the base plate below the pump and fit some pipe through the hole, up to the pump inlet. That way the pump actively draws water from the sump/tank rather than passively circulating. There's a thread on RC, somewhere.
