Slimy,fuzzy or hard?
Its slimy, it came off with a gentle scrubbing.

Did you lick it? What does it tastes like? Looks like Jolly Rancher purple
Of course I licked it. It taste like sunshine.

First thing it reminds me of is cyanobacteria commonly seen in reef tanks. If you keep your PH on the high side I guess its possible it could survive in freshwater
Ya I've seen it in reef tanks before. My ph is around 7.8, not really that high. I just used phosguard for the last 4 days to remove silicates from the tank. I started seeing it after I put the phosguard in. Maybe it has something to do with that?
