Do you have a skimmer? I changed the air input on mine, and the bubbles went away soon after.

Do the bubbles just appear when your lights are on and are they clear and release to the surface.
If this sounds like them it is probably algae photosynthesizing as it grows and spreads on your rock,which is a good thing because it is probably Coraline algae.

Yes. I have a SWC BMX150 skimmer. I bought the whole setup used. I did find the air adjustment valve on the skimmer. It was turned wide open. So I turned it down some. Hope it helps. Thanks for your input.
