Depending on how old your tank and sand bed is...it's either trapped O2 making it's way to the surface, or the product of the nitrogen cycle in your sand bed.

As reefrunner said...Not a bad thing. Only other possibility I can think of is if they are on the surface of the sand and you have a discoloration it could be the start of cyano.

If the bubbles are not sitting on the surface it is probably a product of the nitrogen cycle.
