Bubbles under the substrate?

Has anyone ever experienced this? I only get a line of bubbles when I remove a plant or disturb the substrate.
I've removed very little plants. And just today. I was disturbing it to partially bury a driftwood.
My tank is dirted, with sand cap and a thin layer of gravel cap.(ran out of sand to cap)

It's normal in a dirted tank and safe. Expect it to go on for months. If you're worried you can poke the substrate in spots to allow a little bit to off gas at once.

Thank goodness. I was beginning to think I might of done something wrong because the other 2 tanks don't do this.

Give it time and you can expect it in every one of your tanks. We're talking where it will bubble up on it's own without the moving of plants or disturbing the substrate in general. It's perfectly fine. My aquarium took almost a year before it stopped and weirdly enough I kind of missed it.

Nope. They didn't smell at all. It was the 1st thing I looked for.

you could try a finer sand substrate? air bubbling from under that stuff is a common pain but it will eventually find its normal flowing routine as it happend in my freinds tank,,looks kinds cool though when it bubles when it fancys it..looks more natural
