tons of bubbles after PWC using diy python, this a problem?!

Before this I was doing buckets and never had tons of bubbles after a wc. but since I been using my DIY python I get alot of bubbles in the water after the wc.

I am worried that this might be a big boost of co2 or something and create issues.

More likely to be an excess of O2 in the water. Not a problem. Can't get much CO2 out of the tap or out of the room air but you can mix quite a lot of air into the tank water while adding water.
