Question Bubbles on new heater

So i just put in my new heater today and there are little bubbles all over the bottom of it.(probably because i poured in a bunch of water after installing it.) Anyway is it dangerous to have little bubbles on the new heater? Because i know its dangerous to have a heater touching open air...

The reason it is dangerous for the heater to be above water is because the heater cools itself in the water. If it is in the air then it is not able to effectively cool itself, thus overheating and causing the glass to crack. I don't think that it would be a problem for there to be bubbles on the heater. I have had them on mine and nothing has ever happened.
