Hi Folks: My larger fish always have tiny air bubbles on their skin and around their mouths. Is is NOT illness, they are just air bubbles that break and are gone. Is this a sign of maybe too much airation or filtration? Anyone have an idea what would cause this? Thanks

This is not a problem. I have had similar happen. Please remember something that people often forget, you can have high O2 and CO2!! So your CO2 can be okay, your plants will tell you that.

Plants make a lot of O2 so it sounds like you are doing okay.
