Tiny Bubbles in tank

why are there so many bubbles in the tank? My powerhead is in the middle of the tank with no holes connected. Would it be my power filter running should I take the power filter out?
Please help.

Turn the skimmer off, wait for an hour and see if there are any bubbles in the tank. Until the skimmer has been up and running for a few weeks it will produce micro bubbles, it get's better but doesn't stop. If you have room I recommend you buy the surface skimmer attatchment for the remora, it comes with a "bubble trap".

ooooh... it is most likely cyano bacteria. Does it seem to 'spread out' in the day time? I think everyone's tank goes through at least one bout of that when they are setting up. It is hard to get rid of, what I ended up doing was skimming the tippy-top layer of crushed coral with a net to catch it, and then boiling the sand to kill it off. THat seems like such a desperate measure, but it had gotten so bad despite water changes that I scrubbed my star polyp mat with a toothbrush to get it off. (They are a heck of a lot happier now!)

Hope yours doesn't get so bad.
