Is this staghorn? I'm about a week and a half in to my cycle and this stuff showed up 3 or 4 days ago. I started my cycle using fish food and a "helper" dumped quite a bit in because the food wasn't decomposing fast enough and I ended up with a huge ammonia reading. I did a water change and switched to pure ammonia. I was planning on letting it play out and hope it would die down once my ammonia issues were normalized but it had covered my crypto parva and pretty much turned it to mush. Right now its covering my baby tears, should I be concerned? I've been dosing excel and it's died down a bit but I'm not sure if it was due to that or the water change.
