Both Ultralife and skimmer just doing their thing. It will ease up with time. Just keep emptying and cleaning the skimmer cup and be patient.

You could try some fresh carbon and more water change. Those techniques might help, as well, but I agree that you might just need to wait. I'd keep the water changes on the smaller side, maybe 15% or less. If you have the time, you can leave the skimmer running and empty the cup as soon as it's full. That'll help remove the problem compounds, but I personally am too lazy to to do that.
