So I'm doing a lot of work in my 55 (including a good cleaning, rescape and messing around with substrate and stuff) and when I pulled out the mini fissidens it appears to be algae free with an occasional spot of BBA (a reason for the overhaul today) except any area in which it wasn't touching...
It's really odd, its almost slimy to the touch but it's not thick I would say about the thickness of paper. I can't scrub it off even with a scrubber and the only way that I can get it to come off is under bleach
This also appears to be growing on my filter intake as well where it looks like a fuzzy moss almost....but we all know it's the dreaded A word
The Mini Fiss which was in the area you see the bare rock has no algae again on it outside of a bit of BBA, the Mini Fiss is bright and green as well and has been growing a lot faster than I would of expected being choked out by the vals around it.
Thanks for the help everyone, I'll be around as I'm doing this rework tonight (the computer is in the same room as the tank)
Even after BLEACHING the rocks it doesn't want to come off!!!!
