Jennifer V Posted February 12, 2022 Share Posted February 12, 2022 (edited) Hi Nerms! I noticed this white stuff on my Christmas moss in my 5g tank today. Does anyone know what it is? It looks like white fuzzy tufts clumped together. Is it hair algae? Tank Parameters Temp: 78 Ph: 7.6 Ammonia: .5 ppm (Yikes! The tank has been stable for quite awhile but my wife accidentally grossly overfed the snails the last couple days so that could be the cause. Will do a water change tomorrow morning.) Nitrite: 0 Nitrates: 20 ppm Gh: 196.9 ppm (11 drops) Kh: 53.7 ppm (3 drops) Inhabitants: just bladder and ramshorn snails for now but trying to get ready for neo shrimp. Lighting: we leave the lights on quite awhile each day in an effort to grow algae so I need to get a timer and pay better attention to that. Fertilizer: Easy Green and Seachem potassium at recommended dosage for the tank size once a week. Tank has been running for a year. Very heavily planted with Java fern, susswassertang, Christmas moss, various Buce and various anubias. Quite a bit of green hair algae but I think it looks pretty so I don't remove it. Any ideas? Thanks everyone! Edited February 12, 2022 by Jennifer V Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
