I'm facing strange problems with my planted tank
Vol : 2.5ft(L)x1.5ft(B)x1.5ft(H)
Light : 2x36 w phillips master pl-l
Dosing: Weekly macro and ADA Be Green
No CO2.. but daily recommended Excel dosage
Now the problem is whenever I see my tank early it the morning it looks very cloudy.Closer inspector reveals very tiny wriggling dots ( i could be wrong here!!!). But after 10 mins of turning on the lights the cloudiness disappears and water becomes crystal clear. This is happening for a week now.
Then after turning on the lights for sometime I see bubbles all over the tank as if the plants were pearling which is definitely not possible in my tank without CO2. Initially there were a whoosh of bubbles coming out of my internal filter every now and then which have stopped now. But the bubbles continue to haunt. There is no smell of H2S from the tank and fishes look happy.
I have never faced such issue in 8 months of planted tank hobby. Please throw some light over it if anyone has any idea regarding it.

Well thats good news i guess... Thanks a lot for the input.. "algae pearling" - really is it possible

Well the fauna are 3 Rams, 4 yoyo loaches, 3 veiltail serpae tetras.. well thats it...
