question about protein skimmer
i got the little skimmer for the 14g cube. got it all installed. i'm getting *some* foam but not enough to reach the edge of the collection cup. the whole thing came with a mile of airline tubing. should i cut the tubing shorter to get better air flow? i have the valve turned all the way out to get maximum flow.

tia :)

The foam only needs to be alittle into the neck area, if I would give a numebr it owuld be 1/4 inside the neck, lower neck.
