ok so here is the deal I purchased a Reef Octopus BH-800S **** and when I opened it today I noticed that the collection cup was cracked (after I installed the whole skimmer n saw a leak) so I called but they were not open on sat.

The skimmer was pretty simple to install and assemble (although not much room to manuver your hands) so once I started it up I was VERY impresserd with the flow rate of the skimmer, but bthere arfe a lot of bubbles getting into the tank and it seems as though it is flowing too much water because some is spilling back into the intake because it cant flow out.

is this normal?

The micro bubbles are normal it will happen for a few days but than it should go away. The water should not be going in to the cup. Look and see if there is a way you can reduce the flow. So it don't spill over. Good luck.
