and I don't think the air is enough, when I tried to blow the air tube, the bubble climbs quickly.

Any suggestion about that?

Thank you for the additional pictures. Looks like there is to less air get soaked in by the skimmer. Difficult to say over the distance but as you already say you have checked if the air intake is blocked by anything it might be a issue with the pump. Make sure that all valves are open completely. It might also make sense to e-mail the manufacturer sending some pictures (info AT korallen-zucht.de) to ask for help.

thanks. There is only one valve, which is the outside one. Is there any valve on the pump?

I have no additional idea except the pump. Usually the AquaBee 3000 works well with the skimmer.

Hey Alexander,

The first pic is what I removed. Also I want to know if I want to change a pump, how can I fix this pipe to the new pump.

The second pic, I followed ur suggestion in another post to make the water level 10 cm below the connector of the collection cup. But seems I don't get enough foam and the skimmate can not get the collect cup.

So I increased the water level as the third pic, but the bubble is less.

Is that because I only have two 3cm tangs and 1 goby, and there is nothing to skim?

Thanks for that

Also, for changing a pump, how can I connect the recycling pipe (T pipe) to the next pump. Seems none of them can fix it.

The water level of the third picture does look good, maybe you can rise it another couple of cm but usually it should be fine. I am not sure which function this pipe has exactly as I just used the standard model of their skimmers not the deluxe so I can not give you a real advise.

The third pic water level almost gets the connector of the collection cup and the foam is only 2 cm is that ok?

Thanks

That is fine at the moment. To skim wet the water in the skimmers head does have a look like some kind of tea, green / yellow.
