Yeah thats what mine looks like how many days to fill up and what water level?
I just moved from having my skimmer on 24h to 12h with lights on since I want slightly more dirty water for a nem. Before, I was cleanning out every week, and the water level is hard to see due to how tight the space is :( ?

I pretty much saw the water level was right at the top of the first magnet, so I just used a light when I placed mine to verify it was about there.
But, I think some people raise it a bit higher or lower too idk
