Substrate = odd bacteria bloom?
So this is my first non sand (cheap pool sand) tank. It was the 7th when I set this tank up. Dirt capped with river loam. It cycled amazingly fast (probly because I cheated and rolled the dice by not doing anything to the loam, straight from the river to the tank) So to my understanding a normal bacterial bloom turns all the water cloudy (might be incorrect but that is all I have really seen referenced). This is just on the surface of the substrate and looks like the mold that would grow on something left in the fridge to long. (very very fine white cottony / puffy). Anyway for anyone out there that might happen to know, Is this semi normal in this situation and just due to a new tank? Will it go away? If it will not go away on its own what can I do to help it out the door?
