hey guys so i got s tank off of somone that’s used this before just have no idea how he set it up or how’s this stuff work, so i uploaded pictures of the compartments return pump left side middle section media rack and i thought protein skimmer right section i put the healer in there so the right side fills up with water completely to the top drops into the media than return pump pushes it out into the display but the middle section barely has any water in it? So the skimmer can’t rven skim cause no water what the heck?

The skimmer should go in the first section, I have my heater in the last section with return pump and just keep the water level high enough to submerged heater.
Well the skimmer doesn’t fit on the far right slot

Only other option would be to have it inside the tank, your going to need a steady water level for optimum performance.
