Man Bryon you were so right. Went home and went to each of my plants and sure enough it all rubbed off(with a couple hard parts I left because I didn't want to hurt the plant) I also learned all my plants have new leafs and come to find out I left only had half the lights on today. I'm not sure if I can replace the bulb it's inside a price of plastic so and my only problem was one of jungle Val appears almost dead, when I picked it up all the leaves but one tall price and a little new leaf fell off. Is this bad and should I rub all the brown off even if its really on there?

If the brown easily comes off using your fingers, it is diatoms and yes, remove it carefully so as not to break the leaf.

Give the plants time to settle in. Aside from the intense light, I see nothing wrong so they should be fine.

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