    Hi Karen, after using herbtana it's normal for the skimmer to over skim.. Have you done a good water Change after, at least 20 percent
    Have you tried putting some carbon in your tank to absorb a little as well.

    If I can suggest an awesome HOB skimmer, it is the Bubble Magus Q3!

    Had no problem with it, does an excellent job!
    If you have the budget @TheWaterboy sells them, you will not go wrong with it.

    It's rated for 100 - 300L but I'm certain it will do the job.
