Question T5 light question for planted 150

Hi everyone,
It has been awhile since I have posted anything but I have been reading most of the posts every day. My tank is a 150 tall which is 30" tall. all of my plants have not grown at all and they just seem to be there and not going anywhere. I changed all of my t8 fixtures to a 4 bulb t5 HO last weekend. I have this on a timer for 8 hours everyday. Today I noticed that my jungle vals have tiny bubbles on them and was wondering if this was something they do when the lighting is changed. A few of them I can see a single tiny stream of bubbles comming from the leaves. I do weekly water changes and use seachems flourish comp once a week. Any ideas would be great or should this not be something to be concerned about ?

I see that at every water change, for a day or less, caused by the influx of CO2 in the fresh tap water. I have been told it is oxygen being released from the leaves during increased photosynthesis. Normally, this is more common on a regular (daily) basis in high-tech systems with CO2 diffusion, which you don't mention.
