coralline algae growth looks good and I also have green growth on the rocks. no additives in the tank, I tested H2O last night and EVERYTHING was 0 I feed evey other day a mix of mysis shrimp, seaweed, some other red stuff, pellets and flakes (I rotate the food, sometimes use 2 at the same time). Fish look good.

Do you rinse your thawed food before putting into the main?

Well, I think we're gonna have to live with never figuring out what composed that white film on top of the tank. If your nitrates and your phosphates were both undetectable, what it was feeding off of isn't very easy to ponder.

Surface scum and dust buildup methinks. Whatever nutrients floated to the top or sunk to the bottom, and aren't disolved in the water.... would this make sense?

It would make sense if there were some significant measure take in the immediate area of the tank, like doing sanding while finishing sheetrock in the room, or something else that would bring it into the tank suddenly. But, in the absence of that, for something to suddenly appear as a whitish film on the surface of the water suggests that it precipitated out of the water. Otherwise, I'd think that it formed because something foreign was unable to mix with the water and what that was that would have been apparent.
