Power head help

I just purchased a powerhead and I am not sure if it is doing what it's suppose to. The tank is very bubbly now.

It looks like you have the air hose hooked up to it which will draw air if you have it outside of the tank. The purpose for this can be many different things from just liking the way it looks with all the bubbles to using it as a kind of surface agitation. If you don't like it the pump will be fine without the airline hooked up. I believe I have the same powerhead running my skimmer but I can't really tell from your pictures. Petco brand and costs anywhere from $15-$30 and I've been running mine for 2 years now without the airline.
