Anyone have any idea about fish?

I’ve recently got some small platys and danios fish, and the filter/ pump (2 in 1 apparently) came with the tank new, I brought a clam that’s supposed to blow bubbles, I connected a tube to the clam from the pump but it isn’t strong enough to blow bubbles. It does at first but then it stops after 4 seconds I’ll include the photo of what the filter/pump says on it. I have no idea how strong of a pump I need in order to blow bubbles, its about a 14l tank and theres only 8 tiny fish in it. Any help with this or links? Thanks

    The pump may be faulty if it was, and it sounds like it was since it sounds like it was a fish tank decoration, designed for fish tanks. They don't need that much power to produce bubbles. 2 watts should be plenty. Return it claiming it doesn't work right and get it exchanged.
