I added rowaphos to my reactor and it said not to rinse it (believe that was a mistake) didn't color my water at all tho. But now my skimmers overflowing. My question is not why but should I empty the cup constantly or let it overflow and calm down?

when my skimmer goes stupid, I'll just leave the cup off for a while

Let it overflow and calm down. Or else you will need to be topping off manually with mixed salt water and fighting salinity stability :/

Well this morning it was making head at the top sort of where it was overflowing so I figured i would try adjusting it. And this morning I turned it down so the bubbles were in the neck right below where the cup attaches to the neck and hope it was just the skimmer settling in

It's says " never rinse for non fluidized use"

In a reactor rinse it. I don't but do return it to filter sock
