Ok answer this for me anyone Please..

As you know I completely tore down this tank and cleaned EVERYTHING! Put it back up with different substrate. Used the same wood and plants.

Now 4 days later the surface sum is back. There can't be any excess organics as its not been running but 4 days. I have yet to add any liquid fertilizer to this tank (was going to do it today).

Soo what can be causing this????

This is just a guess, but I would suspect the wood of having soaked up whatever and then released it.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
