Pic is not my planted tank, but this tank gives you a better look.
Something in my water seems to be turning everything orange/brown.
The water looks clear, but the (in this case fake) plant and ornaments get this orange/brown coating.
I filled these tanks from the deepsink in my basement. Could there be rust in the water?
I've started hauling water down from the kitchen for changes to see if this changes things.
My 20g long is only 2 weeks old, and I've noticed this is also showing up on one of the lighter colored rocks.
I even have a Purigen pouch in there.
Bump: Here's a shot of the planted. Hard to tell in the pic, but notice the shells. They were white, now have the orange/brown tint.
