after moving things around I finally got the bubbles to stop. I have a question about the skimmer now. How do I know if it is running correctly what I mean is how fast sould the foam rise and how much of a swirly should I have in the tube.

you should be getting a dry brownish foam....

If it is wet and clear foam, you are skimming wet skimmate and want to cut back the bubbles a bit....
