soooo yay! i finally got my 110 gallon tank *mostly* done. all thats left is to get one of those big driftwood root looking things to replace the ceramic house and add some loaches.
but... now that my tank is nearing the end of its cycle (down to 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites) im starting to get a brown slime on the discharges of my HOB power filter, and around the top of the fake plants directly underneath the discharges.
now that my 29 is coming to the end of its cycle, its doing the same thing!! brown slime on the plants and a bit on my triton statue. what gives? is this algea?
my 29 gal has the stock hood and light on it still so its probably 20-25 watts, and my 110 has 2 40w day-max bulbs (FW full spectrum) all 3 tanks are on a timer, lights on from 2pm - 2am. and this is a dramatic DECREASE from the 16-18 hours they were on before. Its like, when i started leaving the lights on less this started ><
oh, and before you guys ask, theres no such thing as overfeeding a tank with severums in it LOL
