I just bought/received this protien skimmer in the mail an it did come with instructions! So I was wondering if anyone had bought this skimmer and set it up successfully, or not. Here's a pic of it spewing micro bubbles in my tank.
My iPhone makes the water look green but its actually pretty clear.

No offense but it looks like the cheap Odyssea type skimmer they sell on eBay. I made the same mistake of purchasing one when I first started but realized I need a better skimmer shortly after and I still went with a coralife superskimmer which was also pretty bad till finally I got an ASM for a while. I see you need a HOB though so I would go with a CPR Bak-Pak or Aqua-C Remora both of which are on sale in the marketplace right now

I did the same thing by buying a Seaclone hob skimmer. It looks pretty much the same as your. Its a big POS. Def try the skimmers recommended above. If you have room to set up a sump, you will have a lot more options.
