Bubbles from return/siphon break

So I just got my 225 up and running yesterday. After I turned the lights on, I could see that there were bubbles all over the place. The bubbles were coming out of the left side return. I know that it has something to do with the siphon break, because I can hear a sort of squelching noise when the water comes out of the siphon break, and when I hear the noise I see the bubbles. I know that's the issue because if I cover it with my finger the bubbles stop.

So, what is the solution??? I don't want to cover up the hole and lose the security, but I also don't want the bubbles. Can I drill a new hole just under the water line? Why doesn't the right side overflow have the same issue? They are both megaflow kits.
