I set up my new tank 6 weeks ago and had my RSK-300 skimmer running on full for about 6 or 7 days now to break it in but it is still overflowing like crazy. I set the water level in the middle of the red water level label where the manufacturer suggests it to be. Can anyone help me dial this thing in please?

I have the RSK300 also. It seemed to take a lot longer than a week for it to break in. I think I ran it with the water level all the way down (adjust turned all the way toward minus) for a while then slowly started raising the water level (turning toward plus).

Mine has been running for about 2 months on an established tank and I feel like it's finally starting to settle in. Unless I change out all the filter floss then it ha to be off for about 6 hours or it will bubble over again. Odd things...

This thing has been overflowing for a couple of weeks now. The bubbles will almost instantly go about half way down for awhile when I throw a little food in for the two clowns I got. Why does it do that.

I'm a newbe. Where should I put the carbon...in one of the socks?
Don't put it in the socks. It'll get ground up. Put it in a mesh bag and somewhere in the sump with some flow, but not too much to blow the carbon around.

Best thing to is is use a reactor, they are cheap tbh. You should get one if you would like.

Ok....it seems to be settling down for the past week. Why does the bubbles go half way down when I feed the fish and stay that way for a few hours?

Washed with RODI and vinegar. Ran with RODI and vinegar for a good full day. Overflowed for 2 days and has been working great for over a year now (Redsea250)
