Bubbles

OK so I have set up my new tank and I am getting alot of small bubbles floating on the top of the water and around the walls, what causes this?

Is it on the walls? My tanks do that if I just started it. Takes only probably a day of less to get rid of them. They go away by themselves.

EDIT: forget what I said and I would raise your water level higher to get rid of them because my filter causes it if water level is to low.

I don't know if that will work because the bubbles are probably coming from the top of the filter where the clean water comes out of.

My barbs school and also the swordtail thinks he's a golden barb lol. I got rid of the Plecos because the were common and they would get huge and they produce more waste than any fish I have seen

I have them with a rosy glass barb. They hang together, but my glass barb didn't really approve of them at first lol. All four of them seem very interested in my bnp. They approach it slowly, stare at it and when he flares up, they scatter and hide.

I know alot of other barbs are fin nippers but I haven't had any problems out of them! To bad u don't live in my area I would give them to u. When I bought my 30gal they came with it along with the sword tail so I don't have that much attachment to them

When I bought them, I got the last three they had. Hopefully I can get some more. They need a bigger school. Have yours ever laid eggs, have they hatched? Mine did last sunday and I found 1 fry. He became lunch Monday afternoon
