Green specks on plants and cave?

I have green specks on most if not all my plants, and on my cave. It started just on the cave, and I didn't think much of it, but now its on everything. Is in my 2g tank. Also the water keeps rather filmy. Is there something I can do about it? It doesn't seem to affect her, and I think it might just be from the light, but anyways any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Most likely just algae - not harmful at all. Just rinse & wipe off with a cloth and you should be good to go.

The film is dissolved organics (proteins, etc.). Add filtration or an air stone to disturb the water surface. Or you can lay some paper towel on top of the water to absorb it (and remove, of course).

Actually I tried that with the green stuff before, and it didn't come off.
