Preventing Mold in Riparium


I have mold starting to grow on the stump that sticks out the of water in my riparium. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'd be interested to know too because moist areas are perfect for mold.

I have a floating corkwood raft that has no problems with mold. It's covered with plants and plenty of air circulation. It's an open top tank.

You can try to kill the mold with H2O2 or excel.

I know if you flood it temporarily it will go away. Not sure if that is possible with your tank though.
