It is good practice to not use the final bath (whether it's called stabilizer, final rinse or whatever) in a rotating drum.
Some not even use the drum or even the reels but let the film fall into into a seperate cantainer filled with final bath.

Anyway, avoiding foam is beneficial. Whether the wet film should just hung up to dry or wiped off after hanging is an issue that splits people at Apug...
