Bubbles caused by powerhead

Hey guys I've got a 4 gallon pico reef tank that is filtered using a water pump that returns the water to the tank using a small nozzle that resembles a power head. Somewhere along the return of the water back to the tank, air is entering the line allowing for lots of micro bubbles to be introduced to the system. I'm wondering if these bubbles would cause any adverse effects? This tank will not be holding fish. Just inverts and corals. Your thoughts?

I don't think the bubbles will do any harm to your system. The most it could do is benefit the tank by adding oxygen.
