To see them you have to get a closer look to the water but I will switch off both of my cannister filters and my air pump to see if they go to the surface and vanish through the air.

first time to see like that. it looks like
tiny egg of mosquitoes before turning to larvae.


i looked at some photos online and they dont look very similar i think it was some kind of external parasite cause these things could actually swim around.

I put off both of my cannisters which their water outlet is above the water and also switched off my air pump and the bubbles where going to the top and pop out.After a few seconds they all vanished.

therefore, those tiny bubbles are air bubbles produced by
strong ripples in the discharge of your pump. it carries
oxygen dissolve in your tank.

i beleive you have air getting into your filter somewhare ...check your airpump is not near your intake tube....check all seals in your filter...and ensure all conections on filter pipes are below the water to create a watertight seal......you def got air getting into your filter

no the airpump is nowhere the intake tube of the filters, so these bubbles arent suppose to be there from the first place.I thought I have a heavy oxygen load from the discharge of the filters.Am I wrong?

My connections on filter pipes are all above the water does it make any difference?

yes .......if you put them below the water if possible they will make a watertight seal ..thus eliminating the air bubbles.........if thats where they are getting into your system..
