    Last night i arrived home to a skimmer that overfilled and flooded the floor.
    My q is this, where must the waterlevel be in the skimmer?, in the main body or in the top section of the cup?
    Does skimmers skim diff in day and night, i need to adjust the open and close valve often.

    My feeding pump is rated 2000l/h and the skimmer runs on a octupus 3000.
    It is for a 4ft tank.

    Advice welcome

    Did u perhaps add additives or something into ur tank?
    this could cause the skimmer to work overtime.

    Just need to play with it untill u find the perfect setting.
