Micro Bubbles

Hi, I can not figure out how to get rid of these air bubbles. I replaced the biocube stock pump with the maxijet 1200 and got new tubing and still every 15-30 seconds a burst of air bubbles shoots out and its getting really frustrating I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions?

I had this problem with my maxi jet 900 in my 28 gallon nano cube and I add more water and the problem goes away for me.

Thanks! I filled it to the max line on what the biocube said and I still had bubbles... Then i filled it all the way up to the top and bubbles gone Is it okay to have the water this high?
