Bubbles not popping on surface

Does anyone know what it means when there are a whole bunch of bubbles on the surface of the water that do not pop right away? I thought I heard something about this but I can't remember. I have a lot of movment at the surface (air stone and two power filter). Hope this is not a problem.

Feinhorn, how's your water quality? Is it sludgy? I may be wrong, but in my experience, bubbles on the surface meant I needed a water change because too much crud was in the water. HTH

Well...you can do a little simple test...away from all other bubbles take ur fingers and make some bubbles with it on the surface and if they all dont pop within 10 seconds then your water quality is not as good as it should be. However if it takes about 3-5 seconds for all the bubbles to pop then you shouldnt worry about it. Also, you can smell the water if it has a faul smell to it...that would also indicate that the water quality is poor.

Have you used any chemicals in the fish tank lately and how often you do water changes?
