    Hard to say what you are planning on baking ... are you mixing something in a solution .. are you trying individual components?

    What are you planning on dosing as macro and what as micro ?

    Use the calculators on http://rotalabutterfly.com/ ...

    And now I can remove overfeeding off my list of suspects that cause protein film in my tank. Only fed twice this week and nothing changed

    I wish I had taken a before and after shot....

    I also have a protein biofilm issue in one of my tanks, and followed my own advice.
    A small Cascade 170 was installed upside down in the thank, and 10 minutes later there was no biofilm.
    I left the filter to run for half an hour, and then removed it.
    A few hours later, and there is still no biofilm.
    If any appears again, I just switch on the small filter, and a few minutes later the problem is gone.

    It might not be a permanent solution as to what is causing it, but out of sight is out of mind.

    Had a biofilm concern once - introduced duckweed ... now I have a duckweed problem .. almost think the biofilm was easier to manage.

    @Innocent159 have you seen

    Yes the problem is not to remove it but prevent it
