Sounds like some kind of oily substance, you can take a sheet of clean paper on the surface and see if it turns glossy (sign of oil). What have you been feeding in your p's lately?

That doesn't answer my question to you. I use p's as a singular or plural (sorry). Now in order to be able to help, what you have been feeding this lone P?

foam is just indicative to dirty water, i.e. undissolved organics in the water....simple water changes along with carbon would help this foamy water to clear up......and that is a fact that its just undissolved organics that are floating in the water...as for a protein skimmer to work in a freshwater tank....it won't really work unless you have a specific gravity of more than 1.010 on a hydrometer......just water change and carbon....feed them less until it clears up......
