Hey Guys I need some help with my protein skimmer. I recently upgraded to a Excalibur Skimmer HV1 manufactured by Advance Aquaria from my peguin 250 bio-wheel for my 25 gallon reef tank. Its been running for about a week now. I cleaned it out today... Here are some pics. im having trouble adjusting my water level to get it closer to my collection cup. This is with the air intake completely open. I found the only way I can adjust the water level is when I adjust the amount of air that gets taken in. Should I get a larger intake pump? Any suggestions for this specific model of skimmer?

Sorry, I've never seen one of those, but I can tell you that water level is usually adjusted by restricting the outflow by a gate valve or adjuster. Do you have one on this skimmer?

I did once have a skimmer that adjusted water level by restricting air, but it never worked very well. If that is the only adjustment you have then you might be limited to that.
