well after taking a peak at the instructions it looks as if you control the consistency of the foam by raising or lowering the collection cup.
Raise the cup enough so that really wet bubbles don't quite reach the top and eventually it will begin to push out relatively dry foam.
it will take a little trial and error over the course of a week or two to get it dialed in just right.
Anytime I clean/maintain my DIY skimmer it always does the super wet foam/overflow for about the first few hours and within a day it is churning out dry foam again.
A lot of skimmers you adjust the water level in the skimmer by adjusting the return flow, but with a HOB
model that isn't usually feasible as it is dictated by the water level in the display tank.
