my new protein skimmer has been running two weeks since my tank started cycling 24/7 it has been filling up the tank with lots of micro bubble but some days its barley any micro bubbles is this just part of it breaking in its like a roller coaster its a hang on one its like the aqua one.

They don't really have a "break in period" my best guess is it has more to do with a feeding schedule and some days there is more protine to skim off than others. Lots of bubbles tend to mean more protine in the water. By now I'm assuming you've had to dump the tray a few times. Can you tell if it gets fuller faster sometimes or if it is consistent?
