    I just set up my first planted tank: got some seeds on amazon (I believe they are dwarf baby tears but not sure) and they grew quickly to form a nice carpet on the bottom of the tank. However, a few days ago I started to notice the leaves darken in spots and a white hairy film grow on top of...

    Does anyone know what this spider-web substance is that's in my aquascape? It's started to show up in the middle of the tank. I'm just past week 3 of my DSM Iwagumi -- and from what I've read I should put 1 part hydrogen peroxide to 4 parts water. I sprayed that on the problem areas yesterday...

    So I noticed this white stuff growing on my driftwood while doing DSM. I actually started with water but I didn't plant my monte carlo that well and wanted to replant and DSM until I got a CO2 system. But I noticed this white stuff growing one day and today there is definitely more. Is this...
  4. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hello all, Read up on this a little, but I still cant decide if this goop at the bottom of my (CSM+B) + (A little excel) + (DI Water) -> Stock solution Is precipitate or a mold. Can you guys take a look at the attached picture and offer your opinions on the matter? Thank you in advance, Jay
  5. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I made a solution of Plantex (115.9g/L), and put it in the fridge to prevent mold, but (a) it molded anyway, and (b) some precipitated into a crystal. Reducing the concentration might prevent the precipitate/crystalizing, but point was to prevent mold, so that was a failure. So, I will try not...
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I wanted to know if my placing this piece of driftwood upside down could cause problems for CRS/CBS shrimp. I bought it and decided to place it upside down to resemble a root like effect about a week ago. I noticed some white fluffy stuff started growing on it so I pulled it out last night...

  8. Substrate
    Well... resetting up my planted tank and of course would like to save a few dollars by re-using my old flourite. Now... shamefully it was left in a semi wet state, uncleaned, for quite some time.... a little white 'fuzz' did get on the surface... and now I am unsure if or how to clean it all up...
  9. DIY
    There's a beautiful chunk of root in the woods behind my boyfriend's house, with a little trimming it would be a perfect background for my 125 gallon fish tank, the only problem is, it's extremely heavy, plus i think it's probably a softwood. My question is, would it be possible for me to make...
  10. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I have a 10g tank planted with Salvinia minima and Duckweed (which grows slower than the Salvinia, suprisingly) and there is white mold growing around the leaf edges and on the hairs of the Salvinia. Is there any way to get rid of this stuff and keep it from coming back? So far, all I've been...

    I bought a few packages of Kens Food a couple of months back (about half a year). Out of the dozen bags or so I bought, about 9 of them have mold and fungus growing on them now. I've kept them in a box in an air-conditioned room out of light. The bags were and still are sealed since...
