Doesnít look like dinos.
There is an algae issue, but you prob have air going into the tank which is making the bubbles.

Ok thanks sniperhank.

Could it be that Iíve got my powerheads too close to the top of my tank and itís causing too much agitation?

It'd depend on the type of powerhead I'd assume...You will most likely be able to see bubbles entering the system somewhere.
