Yes it happens. You probably have a foam filter on a power head?

If you don't want your nitrates to go up I'd ditch the foam filters.

The only time my canister ever spit out microbubbles was when I had floss in the filter and it was clogged with detritus. It was impeding flow; air built up in the filter, then poured out of the spraybar all a few times every hour. Once I unclogged the filter and cleaned it up, the problem went away :)
