White stuff on water

What is this white crap on top of my water? It's also blowing through the tank but it's more concentrated on top.

Probably sand and dust. Adjust your powerheads to point up to help break the surface of the water. It'll help.

Well, that is the protein that you remove by skimming. More movement means easier removal.

Looks like normal algae growth to me. Happens to all of us and can't stop it. This is why we have algae scrubbers and mag floats to remove this stuff from the glass.
