Fish in or fishless cycling? Were your hands clean when setting up the tank (no soap or lotions)? What kind of filter are you using?
Fishless. I'm fairly certain my hands were clean aside from the dirt under my nails from putting the dirt in. Its not a surfacant if that's what you're aiming for. It appeared probably 3 or 4 days after the tank was up and running. My filter is a Sunsun 402BFish in or fishless cycling? Were your hands clean when setting up the tank (no soap or lotions)? What kind of filter are you using?
Ace Hardware 10% solution. Not my first tank. Just my first planted tank :grin2:What are you using as your ammonia source?
I do have driftwood in it. Its the tank in my avatar.Then I'm not sure. There are no organics in the tank yet, so I'm not sure what the film is. Just trying to figure out what you put into the water is all. Plants don't have any thing on them that would contribute. If you have fish, they would be a source of the film, but you're doing a fishless cycle. If you were using food as your ammonia source, that could also be a source of the film. That's why I was asking. If you don't use Purigien, I would highly suggest it. It does an extremely good job of keeping the water clean. You'll want surface agitation for O2 transfer anyway, but that really doesn't get rid of the film.
Do you have driftwood in the tank?
I'm starting to think this is most likely the case. It seems to be getting thinner and thinner by the day.I've had this on both my tanks. Ive chalked it up to being driftwood or new cycling tank syndrome. It seems to go away after a few weeks. I also use the chemi pure elite bag in one filter to help keep the clarity.
