    Plankton are microscopic.

    The floating mass is a variety of algae, you often see it as large mats in warmer ponds and streams

    If it is still matted you can probably scoop the majority out with a fine mesh net.

    To fully get rid of it you probably need a water change, daphnia and lower light.

    THe algae was probably a hitch-hiker on the plant if you have been using distilled water.

    Daphnia are also known as water fleas. They are little shrimp-like critters and they eat algae as well as provide food for your aquatic Utrics You can probably pick some up at a pet store.
