 Hi,
 
 Air  bubbles  released  whenever  I  poke  tweezer  in  the  substrate.  Facing  this  issue  for  almost  a  month  now.  Kindly  help.
 Thank  you  in  advance.

 If  your  substrate  gets  an  aerobic  then  it  could  be  some  sort  of  sulphide  gas.  Does  it  stink?

 a  photograph  or  video  would  be  nice.  Have  you  cleaned  the  substrate  by  any  means?  What  substrate  is  it?

 Usually  with  high  substrate  levels  they  add  bacteria  powder  below  when  you  start  a  tank.  Or  porus  stones  in  between  the  sands  so  that  gas  released  easily  and  your  substrate  is  loose.
 If  youve  not  done  this  then  H2SO4  can  suddenly  bomb  killing  all  life  stock
 Hope  I'm  not  frightening  you  though
 
 I  wonder  maybe  if  you  add  lots  of  snails  in.  Hopefully  they  will  burrow  in  to  help  the  substrate.

 The   bubbles  did  not  stink  after  coming  to  the  surface.  But  the  water  started  stinking  the  very  next  day  after  40%  water  change.

 Hi,
 
 I  added  ADA  super4,  power  sand  and  ADA  amazonia  normal  and  powder.  The  LFS  who  sold  me  ADA  precisely  asked  me  to  add  super  4  and  power  sand  to  avoid  anaerobic  bacteria  in  the  substrate..  
 Where  can  I  find  Malaysian  trumpet  snails  in  Mumbai?

 How  many  days  old  the  set  up  is  ?   Initial  few  days  it  happens  as  seen  in  my  limited  experience  ,  especially  if  the  substrate  hard-scape  is  not  given  moist  spray   or  water  is  filled  fast.   By  the  time,  the  tank  cycles  and  ready  for  livestock,  this  issue  should  be  gone.
 
 Good  luck  !

 If  you  have  any  livestock  in  that  tank,  I  suggest  moving  them  to  a  spare  bare  tank  immediately.
 Wait  till  the  water  stabilizes,  then  add  them  back  with  due  precautions.

 Hi,
 
 The  setup  is  almost  4  months  old  now.  First  week  I  did  face  similar  issue  but  I  was  sure  it  was  the  air  trapped  between  the  substrate.  I  had  released  all  the  air  trapped  in  the  substrate  that  time.  Now  it  has  reoccurred.

 Hi,
 
 Planning  to  remove  the  livestock,  reduce  the  amount  of  substrate  and  recycle  the  tank.  Hopefully  it  should  work.

 Malaysian  trumpet  snails  is  the  best  solution,  indeed.  Most  LFS  with  planted  tanks  have  them.  They'll  give  it  to  you  for  free.  If  you're  near  borivali  area  you  can  pick  them  from  me.
