Hello everyone!
I really hope someone can shine some light on this for me...

I have black spots on my anubias and some other plants and have some on my filter as well. It is mostly on the edges of leaves but some of it on the leaves as small black dots, along with green ones. It doesn't comes off when I try to rub it off leave.
What is and what should I do?

Thanks

I would cut of the leaves close to the rhizome.
But you could also do a 1:20 bleach to water mix and dip them for a minute or 2
Thanks!

I did remove leaves from other plants. Probably will do a dip for anubias just because I do not want to cut off all of those leaves.

What exactly is it, is it Algae, fungus? What has caused it to apear and how can I prevent it from happening?
Thanks

I'm not an algae expert...:icon_redf
but I'd guess BBA or GSA
Thanks :) Just wanted to know what I am dealing here with :)

funky
you can really beat up anubias, I take the algae covered leaves and any damaged leaves off the rhizome, then take a razor blade and put a small slice on the rhizome every inch or so and the plant will explode...lol
LOL Will it explode with new growth if I do that? Because that's the explosion I want :bounce:
