My Slim Monster friend

Hey everybody,

3 weeks into a dsm with HC and I found an interesting alien. It would seem I have my very own slim mold. From what I have researched it doesn't seem to be harmful. Any opinions? should I leave it? or wipe that bad boy out?

thanks!

Hi,

I think it may be harmful, as in cyanobacteria, even if it isnít I would scrape it up, dab up the moisture with a paper towel or tissue paper and sprinkle a little KH₂PO₄ and cut the humidity a bit.

Respectfully,

If your Guru tells you otherwise and you are true believer that is okay I will not argue the point.

I pretty much limit what I say to things that anyone can easily verify from recognized references or by direct observation. If it is my opinion I say so.

You are right on the money it's slime mold, perfectly harmless and super interesting. I have one in my tank and it's really cool to look out for it when it moves from place to place.

Well that's just like.........your opinion man.
