Addition to the Problems


Recommended Posts

Looking at my tank adjusting for some algae control and found this on some Vasisnaria (definitely spelled that wrong). WHAT IS THIS STUFF?!?!?  Found something like it the other day during a water change floating around and I just thought it was weird roots or something but now I saw more of it. Should I be concerned?

Haha, no worries about spelling! That being said, it is Vallisneria for future reference! 😊

This looks like a type of staghorn algae to me, we’ll have to wait on someone else’s opinion. It’s just a type of algae. Most people treat it by flushing Fluorish Excel or Easy Carbon over it with a pipette daily. However, the active ingredient in both products (glutaraldehyde) can also negatively affect Vallisneria growth.
