Went to the lfs. He just got his coralife shipment in. He had about 15 skimmers all from the ss65 to the ss220 and the cone skimmers, gave me one to take home and try out its the only one that fits my current system and can handle 125 gallons. My system is about a total of 88 or 89 gallons

You should always pick a skimmer rated for 1.5 to 2 times your total system volume anyway. So it's the SS125 then? That's ok I guess. Definitely not the 65.

It should work ok for your system. Bear in mind that most skimmers should be pulling skimmate almost immediately. Every one I've tried did, except the aqua-c remora
