What do your shrimp molts look like? I think that's what I see occasionally in my tank but I have no idea o.O

Mine look just like the shell of the shrimp minus the shrimp if that makes sense.

Have you set up the bubbler again? I have a thingymabob on the airline tube that enables me to adjust the flow so it's enough to ruffle the surface but not too much to disturb the plants.

No just got mad and upped the flow from my filter and pointed it at the surface! It pushing all my floating plants to one side but is breaking up the scum ..

This tank may become the first tank I have had without floating plants! I am thinking about take them out and moving the spraybar up so that it hits nothing but the surface.

There is no detriment to the protein film... I noticed a bit of one in my 90g today during the water change. This is about the only tank I see it in, and haven't for several weeks now.

It nasty through! Plus when I stick my hand in there it breaks up and you can see particles floating from it. I have to wonder how it effects floating plants?? Cause I can't seem to get any to grow well in this tank. Water sprite for instance does well in all my other tanks but in this it doesn't. After while it gets a coating on it and begins to die. Same thing with Frogbit.

I am half tempted to put some of my Apple snails in there as I am *thinking* they are too big for the Puffer to eat now.

In tis situation, you could take out the floating plants and increase surface movement as you suggested, and allow some stem plants to grow up and partially along the surface. This would give the puffers their cover.
