Cloudy film

A cloudy film has started to appear pn our bettas water. We clean his tank regularly and he loves making bubble nests. What is this film?

most likely protein film from the food you feed. i get a bit of it too. my tanks are filtered so i usually turn the filter flow up a bit for some time to get rid of it and then turn it back to low. i also heard you can put a sheet of paper towel on top and remove it quickly and that will take of the film.
