So, just take it with a grain of salt.

I truely had no idea when I posted that! It was just the only breakdown on Instant Ocean I was able to locate. I love Instant Ocean and its what I use too with no problems I might add. I mearly meant it to be a referance point for the person who was inquiring.

I do use a Whisper with no cartrigde to break the surface. You don't think that's helping?

Possibly not enough, or it simply an example of elevated levels of CO2 in the room, or lees than O2 saturation as the case maybe. Try opening a window in the room, and look at the surface from the bottom up, you should be able to see the extent of the customary oil slick of DOCs on the surface as well as the extent of the surface coverage.
