Default racking to secondary problem!

I just racked my SNPA clone to a secondary to clear for 5 days or so before bottling as the yeast was so active during the ferment, the inside looked like a war zone.

I am getting major bubbles into my siphon hose from my auto-siphon, and think the hose isnt sealing enough onto the racking cane. I had a bunch of air bubbles appear on the surface and am a little P.O.'d (at myself).

I attached a photo of it while it was transferring, does it look bad to ya'll? Thanks for any tips.

It was in the primary 12 days, and the gravity has been 1.09 for two days. No one can see the bubbles on the surface of the beer?

You are totally fine. Those bubbles could be CO2 as well as O2. You need smaller tubing for your cane. That is why you are getting the bubbles
