im having trouble with my sump/refugium and im looking for advice. my skimmer is pretty big and my water level in the skimmer chamber is to high... its blowing the top off my skimmer with bubbles. i need to know how to lower the water level in my skimmer chamber bc i can only raise it 2-4 inches which is not enough to keep it at operation height. im willing to redo my sump if nessisary just need help or suggestions please. thanks all.

You will need to lower the baffles to lower the water level, the way it looks in the pictures if you lost power you would have a flooded floor.
