BenA Posted April 22, 2021 Share Posted April 22, 2021 (edited) My 110gl tank has a problem that I can't solve, this have started about 2 weeks ago. The tank was cycle for about 7 weeks before plants and fish were introduced around 3/6/. I had all sorts of algae and fungi growing, they all have gone, some with the help of the 4 Ottos. Currently there is no brown algae and very little Green Spot Algae on the glass and some plants. However, all the plants are covered with what I can only describe as 'brown dust'. The water is cloudy and many small particles can be seen. If I gently shake the plants or the roots of the floating plants then the water fills with debris that slowly sink or get pulled in by the filter. There are no rotting or melting plants. I use NTL Light fertilizer for the floating plants, the Anubias Java Moss etc. The rooted plants are planted in a substrate made by Tropica. The fish inside are: Cories (Sterbi/Adolpo) - 12 White/Gold Cloud Minnoows - 14 Emperror Tetra - 8 Hengeli Rasbora - 8 Celebes Rainbow - 8 Threadfin Rainbow - 6 Ottos - 4 Last weekend I have tested the water (X2 as all seemed strange) results were: Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate and Phosphate - 0ppm PH - 7.5 - 8.0 Temp. - 75F (24C) Every 2 weeks I change 30gl. of water and syphon the sand and gravel. Any ideas? Thanks Edited April 22, 2021 by BenA Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
