    yea i took the skimmer apart. But im not sure if its the skimmer spitting out the chunks or what but these chunks are coming from somewhere. The were in they were there before i took the skimmer apart, i didnt really clean it, just tookt he pumps off and made sure he wasnt stuck in any of them which he wasnt. But these flesh chunks are coming from somewhere, weather he is in the rockwork, injured and the CUC is eating him, or what i dunno, but their deffiently coming from somewhere

    use an led flashlight to see what the crabs are doing in and between the rocks.

    I just use led flashlights because the are bright enough to light up the dark spots.if you have something brighter use it so you can see whats going on.
