ok so im on the right path. i just got a protein skimmer yesterday and i have the powerhead pointed up. do you know how long it takes to get rid of it?
and how deep under the water should the intake be?
The intake of the Coralife skimmer pump should be roughly 2 inches below the surface of the water. If you set it up as a hang on back skimmer, you use the short tube for connecting the pump. You may even need to trim it a little to get the height right.
