i saw bubbles under my java fern today and then i remembered the wc i did a few hours earlier...the bubbles were just stuck from being emerged during the wc. anyway, not that you wouldn't have thought of that by now.

Maybe all the parameters of the tank are in perfect ranges and aligned at the exact same time allowing the plants to pearl. Provided it isn't something bad like a gas pocket from the substrate of methyl ethyl bad stuff it's probably a good thing.

No the last w/c was last Sat, Jan 23rd...and I should have done one yesterday/ today but didn't and then was puzzled by the mini bubbles, by no means are they like what one would see from a air stone or alike; they're super mini crystal looking like bubbles on each end of each lil "hair" of the java moss...I have seen plants oxygenation 'well' after pwc before; but never like this and never w/out doing the w/c so I was just real puzzled seeing this today (but I seem to learn a LOT new things lately with all this "soft water" experience here lol).

I mean I know its not bad...its just i HATE it if I see something and can't explain it/ figure it out right away within my tanks.

I just read something lately that (oh wait I just remembered I read it here on a recent thread here!) that bacteria that are working under the gravel will produce gases as a result of consuming things and transforming them in to something else (so the gas is composed of the leftover elements). I wonder if, as a result of your tank being due for a water change, there are bacteria at work on excessive amounts of waste?

Okay, making a leap here.

Your husband didn't sneak in a reposition your spray bar or anything to make bubbles?

for one my sponge filter has no specialty set up for a spray bar (I think you got yourself on to the way of a whole new invention there Sponge-sprayer) and uhm no...he's trained well enough to leave his finger out of the tanks, much like i TRY to train the dog not to DRINK out of the tanks (and no plexi galss didn't work on Maxx cause he used his nose to push it back and STILL drink....poor Betta fish....)

Natalie, I found a great invention online that might work for you with Maxx. I was looking for an idea to block the hole in the hood of my 5g so I don't find a snail on the wrong side of the tank one day . It's plastic needlepoint canvas cut to size. Check out this link, the picture is about 1/4 the way down.

LOL Tanks Lisa. I actually now just bought a glass top which houses a "decorative" rock on its top lol.... Once God blesses me with a FEW mins non-running free time soon I'll built a stand for the 2x10g's which will bring that one up high and awayyy from Maxx level (So he can quit chasing the Betta leaving tons nose prints on the glass too lol)

LOL. Gotta loves puppies. My cat meow's at my betta when he swims near the front of the tank and she sees him. She also loves when I put a bar stool in front on my 55g so she can sit on it and watch the fish. Gotta love "fur babies" (that's what I call the cats because I have no kids of my own yet )
