    Craig refresh my memory on how much surface agitation you have please.
    Some foods can cause that little film. My Omega One seems to do it, I think its the fish oil in the food. I notice it more in the tanks that don't have as much surface agitation also when I feed more than I should. Hope that helps.

    The cloudness probably isn't harmful, but you could add some surface agitation if it bothers you
