    Live Sand with Crushed Coral

    Skimming to High and to low

    I have heard hobbyists talk about protein skimmers skimming to high and to low. I have an aqua c remora that has an adjustable setting for the collection cup. The lower the collection cup, the more it skims and vice versa. How do I know what the correct setting is?
