skimmer help please

so i just got this skimmer that hangs on the back of the tank off of a 30 gal tank to use on my 28 gal tank,but i donk know how i should set the bubbles..
do i need
the max amount of bubbles?
or the minumum also should it be mounted straight up and down? it can be leaned back i little there are adjustments..also now my tank looks like a snow globe with all the fizz in the water, is that normal for a skimmer?will it go away? the only identification on the skimmer is... on the lid it says...aquarium systems manufacturer of instant ocean... and on the pump it says maxi jet 1200.
is there anything else i need or should know about skimmers.. thanks guys here is a pic of the skimmer

To get rid of the micro bubbles in your tank (snow globe effect as you have put it), try putting a sponge over the outlet - I've done the same in mine, and it greatly reduces bubbles in the tank.
