    my diy protein skimmer

    So I decided to make my first diy protein skimmer.The entire skimmer is made of pvc pipe.4" pvc for the main reaction chamber and 1/2" for the input and output.The total lenght of the chamber minus the collection cup is 24" I have a maxi-jet 900 off my seaclone but Im not sure if its under powered.The water level reaches almost to the top of the chamber but Im not getting as much foam as I thought I would.Its been over 24hrs and I havnt seen anything in the collection cup.Any ideas?

    You need to post some close ups of the workings for any help. It could be a bunch of things not working right. Try to describe it in more dtail. How does it make the foam? Did you copy it from pics somewhere?
