    You won't see the copepods... too small. Anyway you can reduce your other filtering now so the screen can get thicker.

    That's one way. Will give more food particles to the corals too. But wait until you've had several full harvests, so you know how it works.

    Wait until you have harvested 5 full screens, then turn off skimmer.

    No the display is not a factor here. But do a good brushing of the screen and tray, and check back in another week.
