i would think those are bubbles, unless you recently added sand. it doesn't look like algae in the water column to me.

thanks for the reply doug. no added the sand like a week or so ago but it was clear a few days ago. i think its because my hob filter. will a sump or refugium cut the bubbles down

it may. it depends on the sump. turn off the filter for a while and see if the bubbles stop first.
