Help with a new tank issue
So I have had my 12 gallon nanocube running for a couple of months. Last week this new stuff showed up. I think its that cynobacteria. My tank smells kinda nasty. The bacteria is kind of a dark green and lays over substrate in sheets. I tried to gravel vac it but it just stays glued to the rocks. Also I wanted to mention that this just showed up one day.
A bit about my tank, I used gravel from my other well established tank. I have one small crypt, a amazon sword and 20 or so frogbits floating on the top.
I do water changes weekly. I normally do 10%.
Lights are on 8 hours.
Any advice on a fix would be appreciated. I did some reading and I read to try to do a 3-4 day blackout, so I am gonna do that.
