    The rear sump of my RSM 130 is level with water across all chambers with no movement.

    My question is, behind the gate (1st chamber) shouldn't the water have a "Waterfall" effect dropping water down into the chamber from the display section of the tank?
    I have a Media rack set up behind the gate and water just sits at the top of the rack. no movement.
    No matter how I adjust the gate up or down, the water level does not change in the back.

    Shouldn't I be seeing some downward flow into my media rack?
    Or should there be no movement at all?

    All pumps work and have tunze 9001 skimmer attached to media rack in rear.
