No more pearling from carpet. What could be the reason?

I use to see frequent bubbles emerge from my carpet all day but recently it stopped happening. What could be the reason and is it a sign of some problem?

Carpet looks very healthy. Just grew a little bit tall and I didn't trimmed because I like a little thick. But as I said the difference is minimal. Very very minimal. What could be reason of no bubbles?

Trimming produces bubbles

Thanks. But does this mean carpet is not happy and healthy as it was?

Any changes in your routines (light, ferts)? I can’t remember, are you injecting CO2?
You’ll want to keep the carpet trimmed. The undergrowth might become yellow and weak.

Thanks. I made one change. Instead of 2.5 ml of excel I started dosing 0.5 as suggested dose because my plants are not co2 demanding. Is this could be reason?

I don't trim carpet because it grow minimally. But what you think is best trimmer to trim carpet easily?

Not sure if the reduction in Excel would affect the pearling.
With a tank that small, even DIY CO2 would benefit the plants. It did wonders in my 20g long (eventually went to pressurized CO2).
I️ was trimming the HC Cuba carpet every 1-2 weeks. It would get “lumpy” and did not have that mowed lawn look. I️ used angled scissors to trim the carpet.

There are curved scissors and angled scissors. Stainless steel. They make it easier to trim the carpet and make it level. Here are angled scissors:
