i have adjusted my protein skimmer towards more on top side of the aquarium as per Pasfur.
To inform u more it was running only 12 hrs for first 15 days coz at night the air pump was to make a lot of buzz sound. though now running for 24 hrs. How to make it silent for the time being?

Well after installing Phosphate Remover the Protein Skimmer is making lots of foam, though still white but a lot. The cup is getting filled every 4 hours. Why ?
