Frank, listen to me and your problem will be solved forever ! Buy a EHEIM 3535 Surface Suction Extractor. It's really easy to adapt it in place of your filter intake, or to add it to your existing intake. You will be really astonished by the way this little apparatus works. I think that all the aquarium might be equiped with such a surface extarctor. It is cheap and it's impossible to do better by a DIY apparatus.

If you buy one, and your Surface scum dissapear, please, write to me and I will be very pleased... :-)
