Floating particles

Hey guys I'm seeing a collection of dust like particles floating in my tank. It's all grouped on one side due to the power head pushing the water. You can't really see it since the tank has a hood but it bothers me. Any suggestions on this?

No bubbles? Microbubbles?

In the water column or on the surface? On the surface could they be springtails?

Not bubbles. Just floating particles on the surface. I readjusted the circulation pump and within a day it was cleared up. Easy fix!

Just get a surface skimmer, or create surface agitation
