  1. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I just started my Walstad planted tank a week ago. I added organic soil beneath a layer of gravel. I've done a few water changes, but despite that this white stuff seems to keep growing... Could it be just biofilm? My water parameters seem to be okay according to my 6 in 1 test strips. The water...
  2. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I've been searching for weeks to identify these little white worms. I really dont think they are Detritus and they inch around to move so I don't think they are rhabodocoela. They almost literally "hang" out near the surface and often found in swarms around weaker plants. I really want my...

So in this case, would surface agitation release excess O2 and absorb CO2 to balance out the levels? I've read somewhere...

    So what's the best way to deal with surface film? I currently have a TOM surface skimmer for the intake to my canister, but this is awfully bulky in the back of the tank. No matter how little I feed the fish or how clean I try to keep the tank, I still end up with a surface film after a little...

    I have a 2 gallon beta tank with a well used piece of mopani and some anubias under a standing lamp with a CFL bulb. I'm using an air pump driven mini filter. I'm developing a layer of slime on the surface of the water which when I run my finger through it, it shows up white against my...
