Opps, 1 more question re: "surface protein"

Posted By: Newguy K

I've been noticing a film building up on the water surface of my 50 gal. Tank right now only has a Fluval 304. There's probably enough "gal/hour" filtration but not enough vertical water movement?...

Should I add a cheap HOT power filter on there (like a Penguin/Aquaclear mini) or do you guys recommend those attachment "protein skimmer" things that Hagen makes? (They are $18 at 2 places in Richmond, pretty pricy... though only ~$9 on Big Al's website)

Thank you again :)
