 @saugata,
 I  think  what  vidul  means  is  a  surface  extractor  it  is  an  attachment  which  is  an  additional  accessory  you  can  buy  for  your  filter  inlet  which  extracts  floating  waste  matter
 this  is  how  it  looks  like...............

 It  could  also  be  excess  protein,you  can  use  a  protein  skimmer  to  remove  it  or  as  bro  aqua  scape  mentioned  surface  skimmer  will  also  help..

 sugata,

 hi  Saugata,
 If  you  use  eheim  canister  filter,  then  you  can  use  their  surface  skimmer,  please  check  this  link  and  look  for  "Equipment  and  accessories"  and  then    "Surface  extractor",  ask  your  eheim  dealer  to  provide    the  skimmer.
 
 http://www.eheimparts.com/client/homepage.aspx  
 
 but  if  dont  use  eheim  filter,  then  you  can  use  hagen  (fluval)  which  is  universal  one.Check  this  out  at  your  local  dealer.
 
 http://www.bigalsonline.com/catalog/product.xml?product_id=25207;category_id=2631;pcid1=1971;pcid2=
 
 
 Both  of  these  items  have  very  good  feedback.
 
 
 thanks
 samratb

 Hi!  Samrat,
 
 Thanks  for  the  info.  But  one  small  doubt.  Won't  these  extractors  result  in  loss  of  CO2  in  case  of  planted  tanks?  I  am  planning  to  use  this  in  my  new  90g  planted  tank  but  don't  want  a  situation  wherein  I  end  up  losing  CO2.  Moreover  will  they  help  in  removing  small  leaves  and  other  such  floating  matter  from  the  surface  of  the  tank?  
 
 Looking  forward  to  your  suggestions.
 
 Regards,
 
 Saugata

 Hi  Saugata,
 
 I  haven’t  bought  or  used  it  yet.  But  I  read  in  another  forum  where  guys  mentioned  about  its  effectiveness  and  didn’t  mention  about  its  impact  on  CO2.  Since  less  surface  agitation  is  the  key  for  successful  CO2  injection,  I  think  you  have  to  care  while  placing  it  vertically  inside  the  tank.
 
 thanks  
 samratb

 Hi  Saugata  and  Ravindranak
 
 Could  you  guys  get  across  your  oily  problems  ??
 Cause  I  noticed  the  same  oily  layer  in  one  of  my  tanks  yesterday.  What  intrigues  me  is  the  fact  that  the  water  in  the  tank  right  next  to  it  looks  crystal  clear.  This  tank  receives  the  same  kind  of  water,  has  the  same  substrate,  and  whose  fish  get  the  same  feed  for  exactly  the  same  number  of  times  a  day.  
 The  only  difference  between  the  two  though  is  that  the  one  with  oily  layer  has  an  internal  filter  (!!),  and  the  other  one  has  a  sponge  filter.  I  tried  out  all  the  possible  angles  and  positions  with  the  spray  bar  to  agitate  the  surface,  but  the  oil  doesnt  seem  to  budge  Sad  
 
 Regards
 
 Suby
