Microbubbles

I here alot of people talking about microbubbles in their tanks from their skimmers. I have some in my tank and i was wondering if they are dangerous for your fish and corals. Some say they are dangerous for sea horses.

I wouldn't worry. They are just more of an eyesore than anything else

I had asked my LFS about this and they said that it should/will subside and stop once it all gets settled in. think cleaning the substrate and all that stuff has to resettle to the bottom again. Mine did it and after 3 days it finally stopped bubbling. also had to make sure my water level was at the correct level.

I was looking in my tank and i had this little creature stuck on my glass. it looked like a tiny star fish or something. it was very tiny. I have no clue what it was.
