there is a film visible if you look at the surface from below, but i wouldn't call it nasty. i just alwayz assumed it was normal or even from the water conditioners. i can't even notice a film when looking at it from above, only when looking from below when the lights are on. try using the minimum amount of conditioner that it recommends.
now that i reread the thread, maybe i misinterpreted what you were saying. what do you mean by surface agitation exactly? cuz my surface water moves around slightly, from the underwater flow from the filter, but nothing that breaks the surface, like a HOB filter would. my water is crystal clear, and i never see the fish acting like there's low oxygen levels in the tank or anything. and i don't use any kind of air hose to add oxygen either. but i'm new to the game too, so i'm no expert.
