I know, I know, tons of algae ....I have been manually taking it out every other day and doing my weekley 15 % WC , the tank is 3 mo. old and I think its still at the end of cycle! Nitrates are 20ppm. They were 0 for the first 2 mo. ...Any way I was wondering if these are oxygen bubbles and not to worry? From what I have read, they are. Just wanted your opinion. :) I shouldnt be doing more than one WC a week right????
Its tempting to get in there all the time but from what I read its good to let it take its course as to not disrupt the good bacteria. etc, right??
Thanks in advance for the insight.

Probably not dino's...at lease let's hope not...they can be very hard to get rid of...from what I can see it looks like it could be cyano. If so cyano is not too hard to deal with...address excess nutrients and increase flow a bit and you can generally get cyano under control.
