DarkCobra I agree with Darkblade48. That's no longer clado, just mold growing on its dead remains.

rainbuilder Whatever it is, it's gross looking and you'll probably have to dry it out like stated above. Maybe you could blow dry it and try to cook it a little? Then you would be able to pull it out or at least it would be dead. You'd want to take the frogs out though so that they wouldn't get too dry or hot or whatever. Or the H2O2 dip would probably work and then you could dry it out afterwards.

Darkblade48 Are you sure that is emersed Cladophora?

It looks like mold to me...? Perhaps I am wrong?

HD Blazingwolf can u dry it out? i see everything is moist?? remove the frogs for treatment?

h202 should burn it quite easily if u feel like misting it on there,, that would be my approach.. remove frogs, spray, and remove after things dry

Help me KILL it...

This is Aegagropila linnaei, AKA Cladophora.



Underwater it is an awesome, green ball of goodness. It can also grow on wood.

So I though, 'Hey, lets try this stuff emmersed in my vivarium!'

BAD IDEA

This is emmersed Clado:





Brownish, Greenish, Grey puke. ITs ugly. Its spreading fast. And I cannot kill it.

Normally I would use glutaraldehyde to kill it in an aquarium. With sensitive frogs in the tank, I don't dare use a harsh chemical!

Help would be appreciated before my tank turns to fuzzy puke!!!
