View Full Version : Bubble forming and a bubble poper

05-16-2007, 05:31 PM
I dont think its a problem cause the goldfish seems healthy and the tank is still clean as a whistle, but i have bubbles forming around the edges of the tank and near the filter. i did about a 10% water change the other day and it helped a little. its not completely over the top, but just a ring around the edges.

the only real problem i have is the the goldfish is constantly poping the bubbles and i dont allways realize its him. i just hear clicking noises and i think its my computer or someones around me and idk it.

so yea, are the bubles just there and thats final? or are they there for a reason?

Could it be soap bubbles? Have you washed anything that you put in the tank, or the tank itself with soap? Maybe it wasn't rinsed completely?

unfotunatley that is impossible.. :-\
for some reason common sense didnt kick in and never washed anything down really good.. wiped off the dust and put in the tank.

The dust from what? Was the "stuff" in storage for while? Out in the open for some sort of chemicals to settle on it?

That's the only thing I can think it may be.

Do you have an airstone? Could be an "accidental protein skimmer" to quote fishguy2727.

Brush the bubbles off with your hand. Do they reappear over time?
