Questions & Answers

How do I know if my Fluval Protein Skimmer is working properly?

It usually takes about a week for a new protein 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 films?

No. Protein skimmers remove organic compounds such as food and waste particles from saltwater aquariums. To help remove surface films, use a surface skimmer.

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.
