So to be clear,
If the skimmate is too wet, turn up the air? (seems to make sense)
If it is to dry turn down the air, or turn up the flow from the powerhead.
I am running a seaclone 100, which is powered by a maxigen 1200, I do not think I can I adjust the water flow. I can only adjust the air flow.125G South American Cichlid Tank

otherwise, its good once a month to disassemble it and give it a clean, alot of junk builds up in the tubing over time.
back to the frosty idea, my skimmer usually turns that up in the collection cup, its a thick thick foam, and it sits there for a few hours until it clumps into a liquid, and the new foam sits on top of the liquid

I dialed back the air and it seems that there is very few air bubbles compared to before. I will continue to play with the flow adjust to keep the level in the dry zone.

Wasn't kidding, either. House is totally vacant when I empty the cups.

I'm going to ask again just to make sure I'm clear on this. Which I'm not. lol Even reading the directions left me feeling a little confused. I ope I do't over simplify this too much. Do I want lots of bubbles or a small amount?

i believe you want lots of bubbles, but not too much flow. On my coralife skimmer you cant adjust the bubble level, and it says not to, but i get my "left out frosty" goop from having lots of bubbles and not too much flow

thats how I understood the instructions too. But when I read them I didn't know what the final product would look like. I'll readjust to meet that. I can adjust both air flow and water flow. So I'll try for "drier" looking yuck climbing the tower.
