Re: Green surface algae

"I am hoping someone might be able to shed some light, not an

only forms on the surface of the water where first the surface starts
to get green and then gradually gets thicker"

I don't have a solution for your problem, but when the weather started
getting hot,  I have been getting surface film of tiny particles (looks like
green dust) of algae on my tank. It is not a big problem as I get rid of it
during my weekly water changes. This stuff almost looks like pollen on the
surface as it's extremely fine grained. Anyone else see this?
