Default Tiny air bubbles

Quick question....all of a sudden my 90 gallon setup has tiny air bubbles
clinging to the inside/front of the glass. The tiny bubbles are also visible
throughout the tank. What is causing this? My skimmer is clean and adjusted
properly. I unplugged the skimmer and it didn't seem to stop the bubbles. HELP
me please :-)

Add two cups of pickling vinegar/5 gallons of water in your tank and this
will fix problem.

(i.e. 50 gallon tank would equal 20 cups of vinegar.)

Do not listen to that advice by Kim (aka Cybil). It will lower your pH and harm
your livestock.

What is causing these microbubbles to appear? Can you observe a source for
them? Clean your glass with a magnet to knock them away for now, but try to
ascertain the source. If you run a sump, it may be coming via the return line
to the main tank.
