I'm pretty sure it's a form of fungus. I was going to say that even before I saw the pic of it traveling across the wood. More than likely it came in on that piece of wood. Did you cure it before you...

The only issue might lie in the stated input voltage of the pump. It shows 12V instead of a variable input. Most motors like that will work with a varied input voltage, such as the fans, but that...

I've never noticed any of my MTS uprooting plants. Anything that isn't fully rooted yet always suffers from the cories faster than the snails.

The pond type prefilter is going to be better in the long run, at least for me they are. The tiny Fluval filters fit great, but they clog up very quickly. I use several of these:

Marmokrebs are fine with fish, but I wouldn't put them in a pond because of the invasive threat they pose. ONE of them is a viable colony that can establish itself should they escape.

As long as the return is pretty close to the same level as the intake, it shouldn't really matter how far down the water line is.

Back when I still used heaters I had a mass "jump". A malfunction was causing an electrical "leak" into the water. I can't say how many of my Mollies were on the floor around the tank. Other than...

I've had a submersible heater that I put in the sand in one tank for a while. No issues with it while I was using it. I stopped using heaters a long time ago though.

In MY experience with lots and lots of used aquariums, the wood trim is found on the Oceanic brand of aquariums. I'm sure it's possible that another company made some at some point.

You'd have much better results using lava rocks than those marbles. You can buy enough to fill a 10 gallon aquarium at a hardware store for under $10.
