Why the lots of fiddling, should be a plug and play. Which BM is that?

its the Bm250

for starters my water level was to low in my sump for the BM i had to raise that

and then it was fine tuning, never known a skimmer that didn't need to be???

Didn't have to tune my one in. The recomended depth for these skimmers is 20-25 cm. I use at 20cm at 25 the skimmate tends to be very wet.

awsome skimmers but tend to run wet for no reason at times... im sure its got to do with the conical cup? but when they skim they skim properly....

There;s a very fine line between wet and dry with these AM 1000 skimmers. I tend to prefer the wet as when they skim dry the neck gets dirty before there is skimate in the cup

Thanks guys. This skimmer is used to working hard. You should have seen it in Surgeons tank. My system is just 300l with three fish two sun corals and two softies and a frogspawn.
