They weren't. It's definitely okay now.
Also I noticed that you pulled the first gas bubble some tiles up, along with adding the coins, which makes it easy to find.
Now I'm kind of wondering if you should've changed only one of the two. I feel like with the coins, we certainly know that there is something hidden, but we don't know how to get to it.
The first assumption is that we trigger a bullet (aka flame bill) and jump off it. The direct next assumption is the gas bubble riding.
Previously we would discard it since it were placed lower, but now it's obvious since it's present in the 3rd screen of the the level, in the ideal height to jump off.
You probably don't need to change it but if you somehow need to fix something you should also give it a thought.
Maybe remove the coins and keep the bubble as it is, or keep the coins and lower/remove the first bubble and make us ride the bubble in the 8th screen. My theory is that if the player sees the coins in a unapproachable place, they'll follow with the thinking of using anything the level gives him to approach it. The gas bubble is one of those, but if it's so early in the level it's not as challenging. The later bubble adds a challenge of avoiding the obstacles while not losing sight of it.
If removing the coins and not changing the bubbles, the player will only find it if his purpose is to look out for secrets. In that scenario, is not so hard, but if the player is not giving much thought he will probably not find it.
Anyway I'm happy my feedback was helpful to you, I hope people will like your level. (:
