Filmy weirdness...

Hi, relatively new here, have had my 3 gal tank and new Betta Morpheus for about a month. He has a filter and heater, and we have already battled a fungal infection and internal parasites. Now it seems there is an odd filmy buildup in his tank, It kind of "coats" some of the plants, and you definately can see it in the filter canister itself. I have been doing 30% water changes regularly but it seems to be getting worse. Any thoughts or suggestions, I very much appreciate it!

does he eat all of his food? if any collects in the gravel it can start to disintegrate and disperse into the water, then settle on the gravel and decorations. a good cleaning should be all it takes to get it off.

He does eat all his food and is a very perky fish! I regularly suction up poop and such too! But I will definately take your advice and give the tank a good scrub down, Thanks!
