fish tank acting weird

Hey guys, i'm a wee bit confused! i've got a hexagon 2 gallon tank that has an underground filter type thing i guess? it uses an airstone for bubbles... anyhow lately its been blowin bubbles out of no where all throughout the bottom of the tank... if that makes any sense? yet the bubbles are stronger then whats coming out of the airstone... i woke up quite a few times in the middle of the night with it doing it... afraid its goin to hurt my lil guy?

any ideas why it does this?

I've had a one gallon do that. I realized that the tank wasn't filled up enough so I added water and it stopped :)

the thing is there is water up to the waterline.. see why i'm confused... i
have glass gems in there or whatever but i always move them around after adding water to get rid of any air pockets....

Huh. That's weird. Maybe it's a problem with the pump or the stone itself.

take out of the tank put it in something that compares to the gallon size of tank and see if it dose it there or look for holes in the lines to.

Hi, If it's a typical UGF then I'm assuming there is a tube rising up toward the top of the tank. If so then the airstone probably is down too far, try shortening the air tubing so that the the bottom of the airstone is well above the bottom of the rising tube. This will also improve the flow rate of the filter as all of the lift is now properly being used in the tube.

If by stronger you mean the bubbles are larger than what comes out of the airstone I would say that this is where the air has "pooled" on the surface of the filter then released all at once.

Hope this helps, I'm basing my response on a few assumptions.
