In this manner, why is there a lot of bubbles in my fish tank?

When you fill an aquarium, you create some agitation, which causes bubbles to form. Too much protein in the water of a fish tank can coat the bubbles, preventing them from popping. Protein foam is an indicator that your tank needs to be cleaned. A dirty filter and debris in the aquarium can cause this problem.

Subsequently, question is, should there be air bubbles in my fish tank? The next question you have to answer is, "Are the bubbles a problem?"
