    Good Day All

    I took over a friends tank yesterday and it has a JNS Aquaria SK3 skimmer. Was working perfectly at his place and now that we have move the tank it seems to be over skimming - the cup is full of water in mere minutes. what could be the problem?

    Have u reduced the flow rate? Is the skimmer elevated sometimes u have to put ur skimmer slightly up out of water to get maximum results
