Bubbles everywhere is perfectly normal and a good sign that you have enough surface movement. It wont hurt your fish in any way. Quit the opposite actually.

Just about every inch of my fish tank is covered in tiny air bubbles.
What exactly do you mean by that, ger?
Do you mean the glass has bubbles clinging to it? The decorations, plants, filter tube, etc?
Or do you mean there are bubbles on the surface of the water?

When the water is over saturated you will see hundreds of tiny bubbles clinging to the surfaces within the tank but the problem is only usually seen in planted tanks with CO2 injection intense lighting and no surface movement. Basicly the plants become too efficient at producing oxygen and the lack of surface movement prevents it from escaping, the cure is to run a airstone in the tank for a few minutes each hour to allow the surface gas exchanges to take place.
