    Hi @Stacy welcome to the forum. 

    Looks like you might have a few things going on. Please tell us about your tank. How many gallons. How long has it been running. If you test your water, tell us your parameters. Also tell us what kind of light you use, how long is it on and temperature of the tank. What are your occupants?

    I think so far you have a at least of couple issues. It appears you have Hydra on your sponge filter (the white things with little branch like appendages) They are not necessarily an issue and not an algae of course. Sometimes beneficial. 

    I've been looking up what it could be for over a week now and haven't been able to find anything that looks like it. I just googled Hydra since that's what you said and that's exactly what it looks like. So I'm going to do some searching now to figure out what that is and what to do. Thank you so much

  2. 65 gallon high. I've had it up and running for a few years now. I have a fluval light but honestly can't remember which one, I leave it on for 10 hours. I've never had this problem before. Only parameters I was able to take are the aquarium Co op strips. Not sure how to even test for kh and other things like that. I have very hard water, nitrates at 50, 0 nitrites, 0 ammonia. I have 32 Cardinal tetras and 15 harlequin rasboras and 8 corydoras.

    it appears to be staghorn. my first question is how many hours of light a day does the tank get?

    10 hours for about 2 months. Before that it was 6 hours but upped the hours when I added new plants and more plants
