Bubbles beginning everywhere

Iíve started to get lots of bubbles in the tank. Some covered in white stuff and quite big. Not sure what it is but before I take a brush to it does anyone have any idea what it is ?

Pictures aren't that great but it sure looks like you have quite a bit of maroon cyanobacteria there.. It traps/contains bubbles just like what I think I see in your pictures..
