I looked in the forums for info about fungus (that is not on a fish) in a tank and it seems to all be related to having wood in the tank. I don't have any wood in my tank. Does that affect the...

I found this growing on the glass of my BioCube this week. I'm assuming that it is algae. It doesn't extend outward (into the water of the tank), but just grows very slowly across the glass. There...

I'm not sure that I'll be able to see anything down in the chambers with a hose of the correct size in there. So I may just have to blind work away and hope the fish don't get hurt in the process....
