Default bubbles

Why am I getting air bubbles on the algae growing on my live rock? the bubbles are a bit bigger than a pin head and they are pretty close together. they don't float to the top unless disturbed by a fish. Is this good or bad?
The pic is under blue lights...

It is not going to hurt anything but you might want to track down why you have algea growing on the rocks.

They are caused by the algae. When the algae leaves so will the bubbles.
