Could be just oxygen generated by the algae. I doubt it is anything to get concerned about yet.

No, I think it's gas bubbles. Could be something decomposing or another organism releasing gas. The worst it could be is dinoflagellates, but I don't think that is what it is. If it's bubble algae it wouldn't pop if you just touched it.

I know it's not dino because all my snails that have been eating around it are still alive also the bubbles float to the surface if something touches them
