I dont think the air exposure is the key here, when i do a water change the plants are never exposed to air and i still get the massive pearling.
I fill the water at the same time and the same amount as i take it out.

ya, Your pearling insnt "true" pearling. If you see bubbles stick to the glass and everything else in the tank then it's just because your tap water has really high o2 levels. If you only see pearling after waterchangs, then its not pearling.

Don't know if I am flogging a dead horse here, but I also have the same heavey pearling after a water change. I was wondering if it had anything to do with the fact that the new water (change 50-60%) is softer (2-3degrees). Maybe it is a different osmotic pressure on the plant cells or something???????????? Just throwing this out.

I think its because municipal water systems are pressurized and therefor hold more gasses then water that has been sitting out and when you put it into your tank it releases the gasses contained......which also contains a lot of CO2....
