Below is a picture of my matter here, I can only describe it as white slime/fluff looking like matter.
This tank has recently been set up with new sand, new sponge filter and plants from my other tanks to cycle for shrimp. Its been running for few weeks now w/out issue until now.
Its literally suffocating the plants and kills them off fast.
The DW used in this tank is some 10+yrs old and has been used in multiple of my set ups so far, so I can exclude this as a source.
I can also exclude any changes in my water supply causing this, as my other tanks are just fine.
While I do suspect bacterial matter being the cause of this I'm not entirely sure as I said this tank is currently still empty. Additional co2 (excel) made no difference at all.
Water para's as of right now: pH 6 KH 2 and NO2/Ammonia is at 0
My 2 questions I'm seeking answer to:
A) Anyone know what it is?
B) Should I let it run its course OR try to remove as much as I can daily?
PS what appears to you as a blurry picture below is in fact not blurry but the fluff/slime matter I'm ref to
