You have an excellent Skimmer. Take the skimmer out and give it a bath in vineagar and water. All skimmers have a resin on them for shelf life, usually takes a few days to break them in. So, sit tight, or wash it out. That baby will work great for you.

Thanks I'll sit tight for a few days and if they don't stop I'll wash it out..
It would have been helpful if Octopus would have mentioned this in their directions..
One other question all I'm getting now are white bubbles inside the skimmer. How long will it take before I'll start collecting that nasty brown scum?
Thank you

If you see the white bubbles in there, they are collecting junk, you just don't have alot of detrius in the water as of yet. If you see those bubbles and foam in the cup, the ugly stuff isnt' far behind.
