skimmers have a break in period before they really start to produce anything. Give it at least a week and you should see some foam production and the microbubbles will diminish as well

I don't think you should have any bubbles in your tank -break-in period or not. You may have to play with the air injection a bit. Probably best to not fuss over it too much for a week or 2 until everything settles down.

For the next time you get a skimmer you can wash it in hot water (tap water hot) and that should knock a few days off ;)
