I get that oily stuff too but it appears like hours after a water change so I don't even bother with it. It doesn't seem to hurt my fish...

bleh they had "metallic bettas" for sale in a PJ'S PETS in west edmonton mall. 1 the correct term is dragonscale, 2 they weren't, and 3 they were halfmoons and 25.00. the other bettas were sick and dying/dead. but the two fancy ones were cared for. The one boy had awesome finnage...but meh.

i get that oily crud, too. don't pay it much mind.

but, in some of my tanks, it's accompanied by... something. that looks like white dust. it's very annoying, hard to remove from the tanks, and just makes it look gross. :I

Karebear,

I have trouble with oily water and surface scum sometimes. I deal with it with a general tank cleanup (making sure not to disrupt bacteria in the filter)

Good luck
