It's lush because it's freshly replanted . Trust me, it didn't look like this 2 weeks ago after a year of running this tank. I did have nice growth for about 6 - 8 months into this tank, but things seem to die on me after that.

I will keep you updated if it stays this way.

Yes I did add more substrate. The pack included just wasn't enough. I'm mixing ada and fluval right now.

How long has your tank been running?

Marsilea species don't really need CO2. The only reason I asked is because I have read that they have a higher tendency to sprout more emersed-growth leaves when CO2 is highly available in the water (as it is in the air during emersed growth).

Love the S. repens btw. I just got a Finnex 4 as a gift and that is one of the plants I will be looking to put in it.

The white slimy stuff coming out of the the wood seems to have transferred onto some of my plants and also on the glass? Is this fungus? Bacterial bloom?

My shrimp don't seem to be eating it either.

Added Rotala Rotundifolia and Marimo Balls.


I've had Manzanita before and I know the white slime is normal, but some of this stuff is now on my plants too. I can scrub the wood, but not the plants. Any sugggestions?

Yes the white slim is totally normal just about all wood will get a little bit of it for the first few days of week. Then its gone. It's just bio slime it hurts no one. I just manually remove it during WC and it soon goes away.

80gal planted Angelfish community.
100gal SA cichlid, Silver dollar, and delhezi. No plants!

Is it normal for it to attach itself to the glass and plants too?

Weird that your shrimp wont eat it, and you say the tank is about a year old? At this point I've no idea since I only see it on driftwood in a newly set up tank, then it dies off and/or shrimp eat it all up.

edit: Oh right, you rescaped the whole thing at the start of the month. That'll teach me not to read properly.

Yeah, the tank is over a year, but the wood is new. My amano and cherries don't show any interest in it at all. Too well fed? Maybe I need a nerite snail or something.

I have never seen anything eat this stuff. Once it goes away they might keep it under control. I have had this white film get to be 2 inches thick it looked like jelly so yuk. a few weeks later it was gone never to be seen again. So don't worry. I use to scrub the wood with salt that kind of helped. But I know it goes away and dose no harm so I Leave it.

Java fern is pretty tolerate of lowlight 10w would be alright, but not sure about your other plants. Are you running a flora? You could use the stock light and your 10 for at total of 23w and that would open up more options.

Have you tried contacting Fluval? It's got a 2 year warranty. Cheers.
