KittenFishMom Posted February 26 Share Posted February 26 I tried to give you all the relivent info. @Colu, this might belong under "Deases", but I put it here because the fish don't seem to being any signs of problem. THE FACTS: 55 Gallon semi-Walstad tank with organic potting soil under a large grain sand cap. Lots of large drift wood, some small drift wood and cholla wood. 5 or 6 IALs I think I got the tank set up in Dec 2022. Livestock Peppered corys (about 11 adults unknown number of hiding fry) Neon Tetras (9) Kuhli Loaches That I almost never see (5) Male Plakat Betta (1) Mystery snails, and a wide variety of other snails. A few leeches Scuds that I never see Plants: Lots and lots. There are lily and lotus that are putting up lily pads, philodendrons, lots of smallish plants I cannot remember the names of, and a lot of java moss carpeting most of the bottom and mingling here and there with pre-filters and drift wood. There is a banana plant and java fern that is hidden there somewhere. Water Parms from ACO dip sticks: Ammonia: 0 Nitrate: < 10 Nitrite: 0 HG: < 300 KH: 0 pH: < 6.4 Cl:0 Temp: 70 Problem: I have something white spreading under some plants moved to cover a relatively bare spot. It was rather slap-dash. Now the plants are thriving and dense. I think they have slowed the flow in that area of the tank. There is some webby white stuff spreading under these plants. I don’t want to rip them out for fear of releasing this stuff into the rest of the tank. I added several alder cones in that area, hope the natural anti-fungal tannins would clear things up. This may have surfaced form the potting soil, or was in the water and the slow flow let it take hold. Not sure of the best way to treat it. I will be doing a water change this evening. The daily changes on the shrimp cory fry tank have caused me to get behind with the big tank. Thanks for your help KittenFishMom (My cory kittenfish are SO cute) White stuff under Java moss and other small plants: rim of below surface bowl for moon light on a pond after dark and cholla wood: Alder cone having no effect: More white stuff on black sand under Java moss: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
