Water has micro small bubbles floating around

Fluval Edge 6 gallon tank with 5 fish, 3 shrimp.
My water is 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, 5ppm nitrates.
Changed filter carbon and cleaned.

Water parameters are good but the water looks thick and has these very small bubbles floating around, forming from the sides and floating toward the top.

What are these bubbles? Why does my water seem "thick"? Is this something to worry about?

I use flourish excel if this has anything to do with it.

Thanks

Did you just do a water change? This is very common after doing a water change with water fresh out of the tap. It has tons of dissolved gases that are bubbling out.
