If it is a thin layer or film, you might be able to pull it out by gently laying a paper towel on top of the water. The green film should adhere to the towel. Do you have any pictures?
yes , but after cleaning most of it it comes back a few days later - im looking for the cause there...
what is the cause and how can i prevent it next time
thanks friends, problem solved 3-4 days after adding small power head at water surface...
