To get rid of the surface scum you need more water flow on the surface. Just a nice light ripple will be fine you don't have to blast it out of the tank. As far as the micro bubbles if the skimmer is still breaking in give it time. If that's not the case let's get a pic of the skimmer too.

I'd do a tunze comline filter. That filter skims the surface when you don't have an overflow
