Hi..the film on the water is proberly the oils from fish that you feed..I find if you get a spare jug of tank water and rince the food of first helps to keep it down,
plus dont do too big of a water change this could really upset your balance of your parameters..do 10% each day untill your happy they go back to your normal rota

I did about a 40% wc, im going to turn off the lights so my fish can be little stressed as possible, and so i can stop worring about it , because ther is nothing i can doo after this
Well you have to skim the top water to get rid of the protein buildup. having good amount of surface agatation will help to keep it from building up some.

or you can manually skim it with a small bucket or something you can dip into the tank.

Or you can wait a couple hours and do another water change. but manually skimming is less work.

BTW a 10% waterchange on a large tank is pointless and not worth the effort of puling your gear out.
