D&D typhoon skimmer

I hoping to find others with this skimmer. I set it up 2 days ago and at this point I'm still getting millions of micro bubbles back in the tank and thus far it has yet to produce any real skimmate. I know the instructions say to give it 3 days but I've seen you tube videos of people with this skimmer where it was rocking not even 24 hours later. I realize that every tank is different but just wanted to talk anyone else that has or has had this skimmer and can give tips. Or just make sure I have it set up right. Currently the return slot is pointed at a 45 degree angle toward the surface. The Venturi valve is wide open and I have the water level set to about a half inch above the lock ring.
