How do I know if my protein skimmer is working properly?

It usually takes about a week for a new skimmer to break in. When adjusting your skimmer, start with the air input at maximum and slowly push the skimmer collection cup down until you see the type of skimmate desired (dark brown to black coloration, and not too watery, is ideal). Be patient and allow for a day or two after each adjustment to evaluate.

Do Fluval Protein Skimmers remove surface film on a freshwater aquarium?

No. A protein skimmer is designed for use in marine aquariums only. Stop the pump and remove the film with a small container or a net. Then apply a filter media with a good organic scavenging resin and high grade carbon, such as Fluval Total Clear. We also recommend installing a Fluval surface skimmer (#A240).

I added Fluval Aqua Plus Water Conditioner to my aquarium after a partial water change. Why has my protein skimmer overflowed?

This is due to the fish-protecting colloids included in Fluval Aqua Plus Water Conditioner. Simply shut off your skimmer for a couple of hours to prevent this from happening in the future.
