Sure there are better skimmers, but most are very spendy and much more finicky about adjustments.

The trick is you usually want slower flow rates going between the 'fuge and the display, but having good flow within the 'fuge itself is helpful for better algea growth, etc.

I'm wondering if this is similar to what happens to some LPS when under too much light, where you get oxygen bubbles trapped in the tissue from photosynthesis run wild.

Stay away from Fiji Yellows and Devils Hands, they like a bit more light.
