Hey I have this new/used protein skimmer that I'm putting into my tank I turned it on and it seemed to be working fine. The one problem I am having is that it keeps filling the cup up with water instead of the nasty skim stuff. I'm pretty new to protein skimmers obviously. Any suggestions?

I don't see any, but I did put a red slime stain remover into my tank last week to get rid of red slime last week. The skimmer might just be getting all the nutrients out of the water and it's filling up quickly, but I'm not sure.

I'd put my money on the slime remover. I've used it before with the same results. I must have emptied my cup ten times before I hot back go normal skimming.

Dang alright. Thanks I did a quick 5 gallon water change to see any difference but nothing. I'm sure it is the slime remover too. The water seems to be slowing down as it's filling each cup hopefully it works.
