    NSW is full of plankton and other tiny bits and pieces of life. However if it is micro bubbles then you need to find out what is causing them. Could be your skimmer or a powerhead occasionally sucking air in, they do this sometimes when they are too close to the surface of the water, they create a vortex and suck in air for a split second.
