    So I was away for a couple of days and when I came back my apisto had died. All other inhabitants in this 12 gallon tank were fine. So what I did was that I took him out, I did a water change, normal maintenance - cleaning the gravel/substrate and so on. I also used my test kits for NO2 and NO3...

    Ive noticed this white fuzz on my driftwood and have scurbbed it off during a water change and it has now returned. Is this algae if no that is it and how do i treat it? Any input appreciated thanks.

    I woke up this morning and turned on the lights in my new 20 gallon tank. It's five days into cycling and everything seems to doing fine. But when I looked over at my Co2 Drop Checker I saw that around the opening had grown a membraneous white, furry film. Can anyone tell me what it is and...

    This practically appears overnight! Every time I clean it out, it comes back. I've done research but I've come up with nothing on what it could be, or how to treat it. Tank Specifications: -Size: 10 gallon -Lighting: LED, 10 hours usually -Substrate: Sand, with a few root tabs...

    So I have this weird white fungus-like growth on my Manzanita wood. Though I already had this wood inside a tank for months, I just transferred it to another tank, and now there is this white fungus-like growth on it. I read that Otos eat it, is that true? It looks like a clear gel or...

    My piece of driftwood is getting a clear/whitish fungus growth. It hasn't affected the ferns or moss on the wood, so should I be concerned? Will it go away after time, or what could I do to get rid of it without putting chemicals into the tank?

    This stuff perplexes me, since I scrape it off and it reattaches - but only on the driftwood. My plants are fine, with the exception of a few diatoms on some of my less healthy stems, but my driftwood has this white filmy stuff on it. I'd think it's caused by bacteria, but I think it's pretty...

    Hey all, Well for those who know I have a Mini M tank and I am ready for buying my plants but this is the only obstacle in my way. I did some search on it but I took some picture's. Also I haven't ever seen this fuzzy stuff before. This is a pretty new tank so I would think it is because...

    I noticed some white filmy stuff on my driftwood yesterday and it has me a little worried. It seems to have spread more since yesterday. My first inkling is that it is a fungus. Could it just be something that is leaking out of my wood? Here is a picture (sorry about the poor quality) Can...

    I have this piece of driftwood in my new planted tank that is growing some kind of clear slime on it. My new Eheim should be here in a day or two so for right now I'm using a hang on the back filter that is inadequate. I found the driftwood in a local creek. Should I go ahead and take the...

    Hi folks- I starting up my first real planted tank after years of plastic ones and I have a problem that I've never come across. My tank has been up for about a week now and a couple of days ago I suddenly noticed a few areas of the tank with white mold/moss/spiderwebs/who-knows-what. They...

    I have this white slimey substance that started growing on my heater suction cups. I thought it was a form of algae (sorry if this belongs in the algae forum, was not sure) and I cleaned the filter out today and it was all inside the aquaclear. Is this a form of algae, does anyone know?? Thanks-
