Most skimmers require a "break in" period. They will usually make micro bubbles like crazy for a couple of weeks. I am not familiar with the skimmer you mentioned...well, I have an old Aqua Clear but I'm not sure what model it is. They are not really great skimmers. On the other hand, they are better than nothing. I think once you get some buildup on the skimmer body, the bubbles will slow down.
