Lint in my low tech tank...


I just installed two dual sponge filters which I only did a quick rinse on both. So I'm guessing its from there and I do have a little too much light from my fugeray 30" for my 20L but I don't think its algae or mold because its constantly floating around. Does it eventually clear up as I do water changes?

The particles are too small to be seen in a picture. Well, I don't have anything that can capture such particle size. Sorry.

If it's really bothering you rent a diatom filter for a day.
