Hmmm. The only thing I have in the tank are Oto's and plants. Tossed in an algae wafer before a 4 day trip and came back to this mess.

Have been planning to add a school of habrosus, but thought I'd wait until the outbreak cleared. Should I instead add the fish and hope they clear the outbreak, or is there something else I might try before adding fish. I'd rather not wait for them to go away on their own!
