I had some protein film in my tanks for a few months last Summer. It suddenly popped up in all my tanks at the same time one day, was hard to control for a long time, and then suddenly was gone a few months later. Filters helped somewhat, but I don't like to run them overnight, and the film would reform very quickly. I found it easier to just remove them with a paper towel every morning and evening.

But it doesn't hurt the fish at all. In fact, one of them seemed to enjoy playing with it.

I agree, it is ugly, but it has had no ill effects on my fish. i have a strong filter and it won't go away. i guess that you just pick and choose your battles and to me, wiping film off the water twice a day when it does no harm seems to be a waste. just an opinion.

Get a surface plant like frogbit or duckweed. The protein will still be there, but it is much less noticeable among all the pretty green. lol. Though if you have a filter, at least for me, duckweed won't grow very well. So I guess what I am saying is that if you are not going to have a filter, having a floating plant is your other option!
