are you talking bubbles coming out of the gravel and shooting up? or specs of something swimming around?

yes, that is the effect of the filtering pump.
the more rippled discharge point, the more tiny
bubbles circling around.

oh boy dude, when I saw something like that in my tank it turned out to be a parasite, and it turned into millions I had to nuke the tank. look at them with a magnifing glass. i took one and put it in a slide, heres what they look like under a microscope.

Can I do something to remove them? Are they harmless?

Whoa hold on now I said thats what happened to me, im not saying this is your case, check them with a magnifing glass, if they dont look exactly like an air bubble should look there not, the charecteristic of these guys is swim like there drunk in loops and grab onto each other and shoot down or up then break apart, but like i asked before are these acctually airbubble can u see them easily? u had to kinda try to find these, and do they eventually rise the surface and pop like a real air bubble?

also they started to appear after a sick Raphael catfish someone gave me died, there where no fish in there after him and after i discovered them so i dont know if they were what was killing that fish or what. But i didnt take the chance of putting a new fish in.

i haven't reach to that point using microscope.
but mosquito egg and or planaria eggs are not
harmful to the fishes. you can control them
by controlled feedings. overfeeding encourage
more of them.....
