Jay's tank is getting bubbly... what happening?

this COULD be a bubble nest, i have never seen on in person, but it doesn't look like its sticking together... (may be the result of my filter being too high, and not letting it form) but there are GIANT bubbles where the water from the filter comes out, (not right where it comes out, but right under) The bubbles from the filter are larger then normal... Half the size of pennys? and the whole filter seems to have TONS if itty bitty bubbles all over the tank, (on the inside to, floating up....)

Whats going on? the fish seems happy, simming around, always eating, no bad effects on his body from what i can see... he even hides in the castle i have for him... i don;t have any plants yet, but he still seems fine... (10 gal M crowntail, all by himself) i feed him 2-3 pellets twice a day, i can upload a few pictures in the morning,. far too dark now. any help will rock.

if you just added new water, the bubbles on the tank are normal. they last a day or so, and are nothing to worry about.

i think the other bubbles, are just the filter being on.
