Snowy looking sediments on my plants and substrate
I did a total rescape of my 2 footer tank yesterday. Washed the used substrate(ADA Power Sand and ASII) to remove its muddy state. Laid the substrate and top it off with NEW ASII Powder.
I then did the planting, Japanese Harigrass(Foreground), Isoetes Sp(Foreground), Anubias Barteri(around driftwood), C. Balansae(Background), Assorted Mosses(on driftwood), C. Albida(midground) and Some Blyxa Japonica(here and there).
Filled in water, did close to 3 x 90% WC. Started the filter(Eheim 2213 - 5 year old) and boom, filter was bust. Water was coming our real slowly(even slower than piss). Did everything i know off to release trapped air bubbles to even servicing the impeller. Still like piss!
So it was late and decided to leave it as is. To my surprise, this morning, some weird looking hairy stuff which is white colored was clinging on to my hairgrass,moss and also settling on the substrate.
I would post a picture, but I am cameraless for now.
What could it be?
Shall i vacuum it out? It will mixup my ASII(Powder) and the normal ASII though, shall I still do it?
Shall I just save the plants and blast them with water and scape again after the filter problem is resolved?
One thing I noticed when i was filling up water yesterday during midday that the water was really warm! Its really heaty here!
