I purchased a 180g tank from someone last jan-feb 16. I got a orca system skimmer with the tank. I have it gravity fed and had to replace the PSK 2500 circulation pump with new PSK 1000. The PSK1000 is working better then the 2500 but still not fill the collection cup. I need more info on the skimmer to get it to work right. I havent fild the cup since i started it. I have to clean the neck every couple weeks. It builds up 1/4" slime. Can't find much on Google, was hoping someone might have had one or had experience with one. http://i.imgur.com/Q7JUYoo.jpg. http://i.imgur.com/jmVF0PO.jpg. these are not my pics only ones I could find online. http://i.imgur.com/Z9EkOvS.jpg. please if you know anything about this skimmer I would appreciate all your knowledge.

Alright, so I raised the skimmer up about 1 1/4" and made the venturi go directly into the pic verses over the fitting allowing more air flow. After raising it up I could allow more water flow into the skimmer. If I raise it up another 1" I think I can max out water going into it. After the first hour or so, https://vimeo.com/173865273 and now https://vimeo.com/173864843

The skimmer still seems to be working better then it has been. No one has experience with this skimmer?
