Tiny bubbles? not bubble nest

I did a water change today and i came home tonight and theres these really tiny bubbles maybe the size of the end of ur pencil tip and they keep rising from the bottom. There like the bubbles that rise in a colum from the bottom of a beer glass. is this the change of ammonia to nitrate to nitrite happening? cause theres alot of bubbles rising and its constant.
Also when i changed the water the temperature went from around 78 to 83. i live in arizona so the cold water comes out kinda warm.... anyways just curious

After a water change I'll notice small bubbles occasionally rising from the substrate (they just got trapped there during gravel vacuuming and adding new water), however they're not constant. But water straight from the tap tends to have more gas bubbles in it, and warm water is able to hold more gas too. So this air is probably just that being released would be my guess. It should clear up within a day.

I have this happen after water changes as well, it can be a consistant stream that goes on for sometimes hours or it can just be random streams that occur shortly after the change.

I personally think it's oxygen that's been trapped and is just escaping, I also sometimes get it from freshly cut stems when I trim my plants back. I may be mistaken but I don't think it's harmful.
