Protein Skimmer Not Working.

I have 30 gallon tank with an internal protein skimmer and its not working. It takes out only white foam, not dirty yellow colour skimmate. Its adjusted fine as the foam are coming just white out but not yellow. Its been installed since more than one month.

It looks something like this.

Raise the skimmer higher in the water column. Just a tiny bit. This should help.

Honestly, this skimmer is way to small for a 30 gallon tank anyhow. You should be looking at something like this:

Just tried to launch the website and can't find the server.

Can you copy and past the available skimmers maybe?

check your dns -- if you cannot find the server, the link to the exact skimmer won't show up on your browser -- unless he can find another picture on another site.

basically when the site doesn't load, it means that the domain name server (dns) may not have that entry.

try changing your DNS over to 208.67.222.222 and see -- that'll help.

ahh no worries, most likely if you have issues with that you can talk with the isp -- I can resolve the name to IP with no problems so I was able to pull up that info.
