I'm thinking you have "green water". Free floating algae spores in the water. It can be a common occurence in dirty tanks. Usually more associated with freshwater tanks. USMC Mike has a UV sterilizer which really helps to cut down on green water syndrome. After a few days that skimmer should sparkle clean your water and start producing black Nog.
