Take a look at pics of dinoflagellates and see if that's what you have.

It doesn't really look like that. It's almost like air bubbles coming out of the sand and just getting caught on the live rock. Once a day I use a turkey baster and blow them off then it takes a few hours for them to build back up. They don't seem to be bad when I first turn my lights on but as time goes by they get worse. Do others have bubbles stuck on their rock?

I've had small bubbles on my sand when I got a diatom out break.

Diatoms will die off on their own. And looks like the coral is pooping.

The brown stuff is coming out of the mouth in the middle of that head?
