slimy stuff everywhere in my tank


not to long ago about 1 week after i have have set up my 5 gallon tank, i realise that there slimy white stuff all over the inside of my tank. on my galss and in my filter. i have cleans it up and my water became cloudy of all the white particle floating. so i took everything apart, and clean it a-z tank plus filter. and the same thing happend again 1 week later. how to i get ride of that stuff?

Is it because ia have a DIY co2 yeast system?

Can you actually see stuff floating in the water, or is it just cloudy? If cloudy it's probalby a bacterial bloom because the tank is new.

there is no co2 mixture going in my tank

the slimy stuff is everywhere were there is a contact with the water. it is only when I brush it of that makes my water full of that white slimy particle.

it is not a bacteria boom

it is pretty hard to explaine. if it happend again i will try to take a pic of it

thx for helping out
