    I have a DNW 150 ReefOcto skimmer. At what level should I set the water level ?

    MartinHal - I don't have that skimmer, but, my educated guess would be:
    - for a dry skimmate: about 2cm below the neck/where the neck of the skimmer starts
    - for a wet skimmate: about 3cm into the neck of the skimmer's neck
