Do some of them wiggle around? If so they're probably Detritus worms that got dislodged from the current. Harmless little guys
Interesting RE the protein film... i will read up on that. Its not Mould... just really bad photos...Seeing this and the thread about protein film, I am reminded that occasionally when I do large water changes, the film can look like threads in the water. Just a thought.
Your pics look more like a mold.
Hey thanks for the reply, im using 100% RO water, im not adding any chemicals. The only thing i have been starting to dose my tank with is potassium for my plants however it was doing this before i started adding that. Its almost like whatever bacteria it is, it doesn't like the RO water and its causing it to almost come off / leave the plants.Are you adding any chems during the water change? I for one was initially confused about RO units and thought that they removed %100 of all chlorine and chloramine, but I guess that isn't always true. I read that some chemicals can result in a gelatinous goo in the tank but yours looks different. Eh, well good luck! I'm sure you'll track it down. :icon_smil
ahhh good to know im not the only oneFunny I did get the same strings not too long ago and it's definitely not algae since this tank does not have any. I only got it once and it happened after a water change but I also added micros/micros and shirakura ca+. Not sure if any of this had any play with the long threads hanging from all my leaves but I never dosed micros/macros at same time again. I use straight tap water so maybe it was some type of chemical reaction between everything that I threw in the tank.
