Difficulty creating obstacles for fluid simulation

Just new to blender, following some tutorials on making fluids, followed it to a tee but mine doesnt seem to be working.

The problem I’m having is that I created a water droplet to fall into a bowl, but it seems to hit an imaginary surface ontop of the bowl and the water particles just splatter and float above the bowl, instead of actually dropping inside.

Let me know what I’m doing wrong! Thanks!

Change your obstacle from ‘volume’ to ‘shell’. Rebake.

That seemed to work in a quick preview, but now my preview’s not working. Im just getting a red X with a notification saying “Anim Player” and it wont play. Anyone know the solution to this?
