Is your tank cycled? What size tank? how many and what type of fish? What substrate?

I have a 90 gallon tank left my aqua clear on for week while getting marineland ready gravle on bottom about 15 fish at first was having bubbles coming out of return which I read a lot of people complaining about re did the filter stoped some still see some coming out but not as much tested water said my ph off a little so maybe I will try and fix that do a water change see if that helps someone said put l of the aqua clear back on not going to be happy if I have to do this since I never had prob with them just that after 15 years I thought they were getting old and time to up grade guess what they say if not broken leave it alone lol

Sounds like your filter is either blowing stuff around or causing your tank to recycle
