    I have a planted Fluval Mega Flex. It is an AIO tank with a heater, media and pump in the last compartment. I am running CO2 with an inline diffuser similar to this one on the output hose https://images.app.goo.gl/EusRTuoio1zkTJuA6 . I also added extra bio media in a media sock in the...

No matter how little I feed the fish or how clean I try to keep the tank, I still end up with a surface film after a little...
