That's seems like a lot but it's the air bubbles that is making it look like a lot. But once you get the air bubbles under control it will look normal

Take that piece of airline tubing off of the outtake. There should be a small plug to put back into the hole. You don't want that tubing on there since you don't want bubbles.

Is this a salt water tank? I take it as such from to fake corals if this is true I would recommend getting ride of that power head because that is ment for a different filtration system but a couple hydro power heads to move the water they are cheap if you go online and grab them drfoater and smith .com has a bundle with 2-3 hydro power heads and a wave controller for like 160 bucks

Yes, it doesn't really look like a power head - more of a pump? Never seen something like this in a salt tank before...

That is a power head. What yall are referring to for saltwater or really anything is a circulation pump
