it does inhibit them a bit, but they can still breathe. I would do a test as it were. get some cups or buckets and put something from his tank into each cup filled with tank water. wait a few days and see what the cause is.

I get them in all my unfiltered tanks. I do think I'm more prone to them in my male betta tanks. My theory is those bubblenests are built with extra sticky saliva bubbles and I wonder if they add to the film.

I don't have filters in any of my tanks (except the baby one) and none of mine have that film. I change the water so often though it might not get a chance to build up.

Thats what makes me think its something in the tank. You have a very good water change schedule and stick to it.

Maybe something in the source water itself? I'm totally not scientific so I could be way off base but maybe too many minerals or silicates or something?
