    No air bubbles were allowed...

    The number zero is (for grammar purposes) normally regarded as plural! The verb "were" has to agree with the plural that puts an "s" on the end of "bubbles".


    However, you could also write

    No air bubble was allowed...


    I would use the first though - "No air bubbles were allowed..."
