Question Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles

...we follow EI with our 29 gallon tank; whenever we do a "reset" with a 50% water change, within' 90 minutes the water column is in a haze of bubbles:
pH 6.0, KH 3.0
What causes this bubble phenomenon?
The pre-water change pH 6.0, KH4.0, CO2~120 ppm

...it's about the fish.

OT but gotta ask: how do you get 120ppm CO2 with fish?

Wow 120pm co2 is a lot. I see quite a bit of bubbles when I change my water too. I think it is from all the oxygen in the tap water.

The haze is from dissolved gas in your tap water.
No need to do 120ppm of CO2. 30-40ppm is optimum.
