I honestly don't think it is a big deal and ends up going away once things get settled in. I don't know why it does this but I am setting up a 40gal community tank and mine did the same thing. Bubbles everywhere on the top on the sides, the bottom, and my heater. Same thing happened with my 10gal but it goes away with time. If you want you could possibly net the bubbles? or pop them or something I'm sure. I just left mine alone.

I use city water.

The same thing happened to me. What happened was I put too much dechlorinator in the water. Maybe this is the case

its normal to have bubbles like that build up from an airstone or substrate filter during the cycling process. I found that after about 1 month my bubble problem went away completely.

make sure you use water conditioner if you are using tap water.

u will also want to use aquarium salt, this will keep the water's surface tension lower to a certain degree.
