Film on top of water

Just added more to/di water and I noticed there's this milky film covering the surface. Should I be worried. There is enough water movement, I'm running a 40-60 hob filter and a 420 power head

Ok, you can kinda see where it's thicker under the light.

Its mostly just dust/dirt particles that accumulated over time. I find that a powerhead pointed towards the surface of the water to make a ripple effect helps avoid this. Its nothing to worry about. Also if you have a hood, keeping the lid closed helps prevent these particles from settling on top of the water.

Yeah, it's hard to take a pic. It's looks fine when I take a pic at the surface. But it looks like my filter is breaking it up now so I hope it's gone in alittle bit.
