Excessive air bubbles

Just did a water change and added a 400 powerhead and there are tons of tiny air bubbles in front of my filters output.. Any suggestions on how to get rid of them??

Are you sure they're bubbles and it's not a bacteria bloom?

oh i have a 280, it makes microbubbles when the water level is to low. with these filters the water is supposed to be deflected across the surface of the water not fall into it
