Hi everyone ☺

Seasons greetings.

My tank has almost been up and running for 3 months. On Tuesday this week I moved the tank from my room to my living room.

A couple of hours after the move I noticed that the skimmate was clear and the cup filled up about 5 or 6 times before I decided to do a 25% water change. Skimmate was fine yesterday afternoon.

I have a friend looking after my tank while I am on holiday. I spoke to him earlier and he mentioned that the skimmer cup is full. The water in the cup is clear.

Please help :confused1:

Thanks in advance.

Most likely the skimmer got adjusted while moved. Either sitting deeper, or outlet is more restricted.

Never a good idea to do big tank work before going on holiday.
