SWC 160 Cone Protein Skimmer skimming like a champ

Skimmate after a week
Producing a nice thick foam head
My protein skimmer compartment has a 9 inch water height. I raised my SWC 160 Cone Skimmer an inch with PVC fittings and a tiny dab of superglue to hold them in place . My skimmer is now producing a much drier foam and skimmate.
BioPellet reactor outlet (black tubing) exits directly into the skimmer pump.
