Does tank lighting affect skimmer foaming?

Recommended Posts

My skimmer does not seem to be working well during the day, but in the morning, it has spit up some foam into the cup.  Is that normal, and does feeding affect it?

I’ve never noticed lighting playing a part in it skimming, but as PowderBlue mentioned, feeding, chems, carbon media, water changes, all can mess with it. What skimmer is it? Does it need cleaned maybe?

I am using a cheap shimmer powered by airstone.  I asked the question since thought it was working more at night.  N ow I am watching it more closely, and have tuned it a bit.  Night action no longer an issue.  Thanks for the responses.
