Red Sea 130 Protein Skimmer

Post  mrobinson2 on Tue 16 Feb 2010, 11:08 am

I recently setup my Red Sea 130D and when the protein skimmer is on, although it does produce bubbles in the collection tray it collects them at a huge rate where the collection cup is full in approx 1 minute and begints to overflow !

I have tried turning the air valve up and up but still it takes in way too many bubbles/water.

Any suggestions ?

If it's a brand new skimmer i've noticed they can take a while to settle in, and constant adjustment for the 1st day or 2. Has it settled down now?

130D Skimmer

Hi, Does the 130D have side window, if so make sure the level of the water is not too high, by adjusting the flow gate at the back of the tank, up and down until the level is about on level line two, (THAT IS FOR MY 250 RED SEA MAX), and that way when you have the two pumps on and the level is correct you should be able to adjust the skimmer button open fully and then while lid up wait a while, watch the water level in the left hand chamber last on left, is not too high, and you should be able to get it with a little patience. Hope you have sorted this out.

Regards,

Juliamarina cheers affraid
