Micro bubbles in nano cube 28g?

Anyone with 28g nano cube have problems with micro bubbles?
The two power head nozzles shoot out tiny micro bubbles every few seconds, it's so annoying. My water level is not low at all, both pumps are well submerged. My most outer(pump) chambers are about half way full.

I noticed if I turn off one of the pumps then the bubbles will stop. Is it because the overflow can't keep up with the pump? I'm not using the wave maker, both pumps are always on.

I looked down on the pump it seems the bubble is from the pump itself, but how can it make bubbles while it's fully submerged?

This is annoying!!! Anyone one know what's causing this?

Cavitation causes dissolved gases to come out of suspension in areas of low pressure.
