New tank start up....algae??

Recommended Posts

I have some black streaks and marks on both Java ferns, and some fuzzy brown stuff on some of the crypts. Is this part of the “ugly duckling” phase? Or do I have something starting that I need to take control of? This is my first tank ever, we are getting close to being cycled.

Its just algae, nothing to worry about. Its completeley normal. And does not harm the fish. Exessives amounts of algae may hurt your plants because they are consuming the nutrients the plants need. I wouldn't start worrying about it, it probably wont become of anything BIG. So you can deal with it if you want, but I wouldn't bother.
