What you need to do is to do water tests. What are the proximities of your tank. When your fish are gasping for air, it tend to be the water quality and water changes need to be done. Make sure you only take 25% of the water out no more then that. It will put alot of stress if you take more out. I recommend you do water testing asap and post it so we can give you further information on what to do. But for now water changes should help.

same thing happened when I put my driftwood in after my ammonia levels spiked up alittle......all you have to do is juss keep up wit water changes and should be fine. When you were soaking the driftwood in water was it the original tank water or juss normal tap water?

But either way the bubbles will disappear over time and water changes will get rid of ammonia......but i still recommend getting a test kit anyways to have aside.
