Hello,
Yesterday I added an air pump/ airstone to my tank and I’m completely new to having a pump. I’m wondering if it’s ok for bubbles to be floating on the surface of the water. Like bubbling up and looking like big bubble nests?
I attached a video of what it looks like and I’m wondering if the airstone is too strong for my 10 gallon tank? It is a 10 gallon air pump. But it’s barely turned on and is causing tons of bubbles at the surface. Is that normal?

I don't think it's possible to add too much oxygen to an aquarium. The thing you have to watch out for is if there is too much turbulence and flow causing the fish to struggle to swim. Does your air pump have a way to control the air flow or do you have a valve like this you can use? 🔽

Yes I have that exact plug thing.
