Question Filter making Bubbles at the top...

i Just got Leo a new 1 gallon tank today, and the filter is making alot of bubbles at the top, and they arent popping, only if i put my fingers over them. The stuff i put in the tank are: Water Conditioner, Aquarium salt, and Mardel Maracyn medication. Can anyone explain to me how this happens? and how to stop it? Thanks :)

you can either not use the ugf, or buy a gang valve to attach to your air tubing to turn the air down some.

My filter did the same exact thing in my tank for the first few days then it stopped doing it as much. I used to blow the bubbles out, but I don't think they harm anything.

It shouldnt be too big of an issue as long as the te bubbles are blocking off all the air for the betta, but if they are air bubbles it shouldnt matter anyway. What is all the medicine for?
