Lots of bubbles in new tank?

Is this normal? Didn't see this in when I setup my smaller tank? Does the filter need to be moved higher in the water?

If you just filled it up, it's normal. What kind of filter is that?

The water from the tap is under pressure, and contains more dissolved gasses. When you put it into the tank the extra gas bubbles are released. It's generally harmless and will go away in a couple of days as things settle down. So basically it's dissolved gasses coming out of the new water.

Yea just filled it last night and added the stress coat and Zyme. It's one off eBay but not sure if it looks man enough to do 100ltr tank. It's rated for 300 Lph apparently
