    Have a small Biocube 32g tank with an even smaller coralife Skimmer that fits in chamber 1 while allowing me to close my lid without having to modify anything.

    My skimmer doesn’t seem to be zeroing out my nitrates. That being said my skimmer doesn’t seem to pull much out either. I only need to dump it every 10 days or so and it certainly is not black like I see on you tube videos.

    What do I need to do to get better performance or should I get a different skimmer?

    I have found the trick that works! It sucks that with our 32’s there are limited skimmer options... so I was in the same boat as you but have found a solution to make the biocube one work.... you need to replace the pump with a whisper 10 made by tetra.... my skimmer went from pulling and doing nothing to getting some nasty stuff out! Plus it is a cheap fix.... just make sure to fine tune it in slowly and you will be golden....
    There are a couple you tube videos of others who have done the same! :)
    Hope that helps!
