    Try the forum search box, I'm pretty sure there are a few threads about oily film and surface scum, different causes and what to do.

    Would dosing the Nilocg thrive 3 times a week and adding seachem iron be to much for this low tech tank? I really want the red to come out in the red root floaters. My lfs that I got them from doses iron and a all in one fert. They have really red leaves! I was thinking of picking up some iron today.

    Put some in a container on your window sill in tank water - if they turn red it's not enough light, if they don't you know it's something missing in your water.
