Hi

I run a 24 gallon BJB with 2 x 36 watts lighting.

Very bright, but i have noticed that my water surface tents to for a layer of bubbles and fine particles dispersing a lot of the light.

What it the best way to keep the surface clean in this type of tank?

the tank has no skimmer, smallish overflow, lots of internal flow.

Protein rich water rises to the surface. The only way to remove is to surface skim. This is the main benefit by running a sump. You can get hang on skimmers that do this job. (SURFACE SKIM) Red Sea have a skimmer called the Prism, which would be ideal. There are other brands however as i have never used them, i cannot comment
