Dude- what kinda skimmer hight lower in the water now (I assume so) and finally - pics please.

If it is lower in the water, it's "natural" cause the skimmer's too low now, however it's easy to assume with out pics

Looking at the pic of that skimmer it looks as if there are not enough bubbles in the reaction chamber. there may be a blocked pipe some where, it may also be a blocked air line/venturi on the pump.
